Lawrence Halprin, 1916-2009.

What strange and unfortunate synchronicity: The husband of legendary dancemaker Anna Halprin, who I recently interviewed for Time Out Chicago, passed away October 25 at their home in Kentfield, California due to complications from a fall. Although I haven’t seen much of his storied landscape architecture — he often referred to his approach as “choreography” — it isn’t surprising to hear it shares a spirit of freedom and openness with works by Mrs. Halprin such as Parades and Changes. Condolences to her, their daughters and grandchildren.



  1. I had not heard that sad news. They will be in my thoughts.
