Remembering a Placemaker

The tributes to the late and great landscape architect Lawrence Halprin have hit the web, with one SF Weekly reporter calling him "just about the most intensely interesting, sociable, funny, erudite, uplifting interview subject I've ever had in my journalistic career." The man responsible for the "choreography" of many of San Francisco's open spaces also would have given Dos Equis' "Most Interesting Man" "a run for his money." Over at Dwell, an editor meditates on Halprin's design for The Sea Ranch in Sonoma County: "It seemed that Halprin's genius lay in leaving so much untouched, or perhaps it's that he concealed his fingerprints so thoroughly."
