BAC Acquires Harvard Landscape Program

The Landscape Institute at Arnold Arboretum, formerly run by Harvard University, has joined the Boston Architectural College (BAC) and is now named the Landscape Institute at the BAC. Starting in fall 2009, BAC will run all of the Institute’s educational programs, incorporating them into its catalog of continuing education courses. “Landscape Institute students will now be an integral part of an academic community committed to comprehensive design education,” said Heather Heimarck, director of the Institute. The connection to Harvard, which owns the arboretum, will continue as a way for students to receive hands-on experience with plant species and care. More information is available at
