The Cultural Landscape Foundation (TCLF) has released its list of threatened landscapes for 2012. This year's theme is "Landscape and Patronage" -- ie, landscapes created by visionary patrons and organizations. Among the sites on the list are the Hannah Carter Japanese Garden in Los Angeles, modeled on Japanese gardens in Kyoto and considered one of the most notable post World War II private Japanese Gardens in the country.
Other sites on this year's threatened list include Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington DC; Riverbank Park in Flint, Michigan; Garland Farm in Mount Desert, Maine; the Nasher Sculpture Garden in Dallas, Texas; and several others. You can see all of the sites and gardens here at Landslide 2012.
