The Cultural Landscape Foundation (TCLF): Friday, May 22, 8:30am, as part of the TCLF conference series, Second Wave of Modernism III: Leading with Landscape will take place. The conference will tackle numerous issues including those that deal with the city’s identity – what does it mean for a 21st century city to be historic and modern at the same time? – and stewardship – what new models for public/private financing and management are emerging? ERA’s Brendan Stewart and Michael McClelland will be among the presenters. The conference will be held at Isabel Bader Theatre, 93 Charles St. W.
