This Forum issue focuses on the critical task of preserving Modern landscape architecture, which plays an important, but often unappreciated, role in our communities. Contributors tackle the broader issues surrounding the preservation of these sites and examine two case studies—Mellon Plaza in Pittsburgh and Peavey Plaza in Minneapolis. Enhanced features include an interview with two leading landscape advocates, slide shows, and links to additional resources.
