Curated by Esther E. Shipman, Design at Riverside, rare Charitable Research Reserve + surrounding sites

Features three award winning, established Canadian landscape architecture/architecture firms: Janet Rosenberg + Associates (Toronto),  PLANT Architect Inc. (Toronto), and Vlan Paysages (Montreal). The Design at Riverside exhibition will present multiple projects from each firm through photography, film, drawings, maps and models, plus a unique in-gallery collaborative installation.

The associated three site-specific installations commissioned for public spaces in Cambridge and rare Charitable Research Reverse will reflect their design approach/philosophy and reference the location (historically, geographically, and materially). Construction on these sites will take place two weeks prior to the project launch weekend. Each firm will attend the launch of Common Ground, and will contribute brief remarks at the opening and will guide tours of their sites and participate in a joint lecture on Saturday, July 7.
