"10 Parks that Changed America" tells the story of 10 visionaries who took open canvases of land and transformed them into serene spaces that offer city dwellers a respite from the hustle and bustle of urban life. From the elegant squares of Savannah, Georgia, to a park built over a freeway in Seattle, to the more recent High Line in New York, each story introduces the heroes who brought these parks to life, and the villains who preferred to exploit the land for private enterprise. Discover the evolution of our nation’s city parks, and learn the history of landscape architecture – an American-born art in which human beings try their best to mimic nature.
MODA is pleased to partner with Georgia Public Broadcasting for a screening and discussion immediately following to explore the history and role of parks and green space in Atlanta.
