We are excited to launch the premier episode of the HRVI Video Podcast with an episode on Frederick Law Olmsted and the origins of Landscape Architecture in the Hudson River Valley.

2022 marks the 200th anniversary of Olmsted's birth and here HRVI student intern Alex Prizgintas spotlights Olmsted, along with his fellow landscape architects Calvert Vaux and Andrew Jackson Downing.  Special thanks to Dr. Francis Kowsky, Distinguished Professor Emeritus at SUNY College at Buffalo, for sharing his expertise!
