Mills College Landscape Heritage Plan
by Robert Sabbatini, ASLA, Planner and Landscape Architect, San Francisco, California, robert_sabbatini@sabbatini-loyd.com WebLink: http://www.sabbatini-loyd.com/ps-mills-lhp.html
Mills College in Oakland California was selected by the Getty Foundation to receive a 2006 Campus Heritage Grant. One of only thirteen 2006 Campus Heritage recipients nationwide, Mills is using the grant to fund the college’s landscape heritage master plan documenting the campus from its 19th century origins to the present. The plan will include Mills cultural landscape, nationally prominent architecture, and continuing commitment to innovative women’s education. The Mills landscape heritage master plan includes a “deep read” of the 135-acre campus to transcribe existing landscapes and features, their origins and designers, and develop a contextual chronology reflecting the distinct character of Mills. This initiative will guide future planning and growth, recognizing the rich landscape heritage of Mills College’s that contributes to its community, the San Francisco Bay Area, and California. The plan will be completed in the Fall of 2007.
