Philadelphia Flower Show
During the Philadelphia Flower Show, Department of Landscape Architecture and Horticulture students and faculty invite visitors to “get hip to living more responsibly.” Temple’s exhibit, Hip Haven: Hangin’ Loose at a Home Refuge, recognizes the stark contrast between the forces in the 1960s that were, and continue, to shape the nation. The exhibit has been recognized with a treasure trove of awards at the 2019 Philadelphia Flower Show!
Drawing deeply from the inspiration of the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society’s 2018 Philadelphia Flower Show theme — “Wonders of Water” — Temple University Ambler landscape architecture and horticulture students shaired “Within Reach: Unlocking the Legacy of our Hidden River” at the Pennsylvania Convention Center.
While Temple University’s Department of Landscape Architecture and Horticulture explores the Hopewell Furnace National Historical Site at the Philadelphia Flower Show, Temple University Press, Temple University Libraries and Temple University Ambler invite visitors to travel through the 200-year history of the Fairmount Park system with the authors of City in a Park.
“After the Blast: Recollecting Roots and Resources at Hopewell Furnace,” presented by the Department of Landscape Architecture and Horticulture, distills the preserved industrial landscape into a 33-foot by 23-foot exhibit that will take visitors on a journey through this once thriving, nearly self-sustainable 19th century rural “iron plantation.”
The 848-acre Hopewell Furnace National Historical Site, encircled by the 73,000-acre Hopewell Big Woods in Elverson, Pennsylvania, is a time capsule of the region’s industrial history. Students and faculty from Temple University’s Department of Landscape Architecture and Horticulture will reignite the fires of Hopewell Furnace at the 2016 Philadelphia Flower Show.
