The corporate campus is now a ubiquitous feature of the Bay Area and the national economic landscape. There is much to learn from the history of this building form — from the pastoral ideal through Cold War isolation to continued aspirations of rural beauty. Come hear Louise Mozingo, professor of landscape architecture and environmental planning and director of the Center for Resource Efficient Communities at UC Berkeley, present material from her new book, Pastoral Capitalism: A History of Suburban Corporate Landscapes.
