Time Made Visible: Charles Eliot and the Planning of the Boston Metropolitan Parks
by Professor Anita Berrizbeitia, Graduate School of Design, Harvard University
Late in the nineteenth century, landscape architect Charles Eliot conceived of a visionary network of parks throughout the Boston metropolitan region. His innovative planning method merged science and scenery to reveal the “deep past” of geologic features, which framed a geographically diverse regional park system.
