Update 02/13/09: Unfortunately, there will not be a part 2 to this post. Lesson learned: do not label a post "part 1" unless you have real information, i.e. notes, for "part 2."
The Environmental Design Library at UC Berkeley is a wonderful resource for designers and laypeople alike. The library's current exhibit, Fatal Design, chronicles the cemetery landscape, or "monumental landscapes, playgrounds for the picturesque, where the growing middle classes both buried their dead and took refuge from the rapidly industrializing cities." The curators are Andrew Shanken, Assistant Professor, Department of Architecture and Waverly Lowell, Curator, Environmental Design Archives and the exhibit ends on January 16, 2009. I've had glimpses of the exhibit and in part 2, I will offer images and observations.
