Questioning Urban Creativity : Montréal, a case study

Inaugural conference of the Centre for Interdisciplinary Research on Montréal
featuring a public lecture by Witold Rybczynski : Two walks with Frederick Law Olmsted

Witold Rybczynski, author of the prizewinning biography of Frederick Law Olmsted, A Clearing in the Distance, spoke about the famous landscape architect's connection to Montreal and Mount Royal, and his earlier life as a sailor, farmer, reporter, editor, civil servant, and mine manager. Rybczynski also took us on two 'walks' through two Olmsted landscapes: Prospect Park in Brooklyn, and the Biltmore Estate in Asheville (North Carolina).
