Abstract:
This thesis explores the meaning of Modernism and Post-Modernism in landscape architecture and asks if contemporary landscape architecture can be classified as Post-Modern. Art, architecture, and landscape architecture were examined during the Industrial and Post-Industrial Eras to see if there is a correlation between each discipline's stylistic movements. Arguments both for and against the existence of a Post-Modern Movement in landscape architecture are presented. It is concluded that art and architecture are the current leaders in creating innovative, historically memorable landscape designs, and that there is need for further exploration, teaching, and debate about contemporary design history and theory.
