In the 1980's Rose's Ridgewood design, built to accommodate rapid change, fell into rapid disrepair. Neglect, fire and water damage threatened complete destruction until the foundation stepped in to rehabilitate the property. The design's dynamic evolution over forty years presented challenges equal to its importance as a seminal work of modern design. Both the design and its rehabilitation have been recognized by the American Society of Landscape Architects with prestigious awards, including the Centennial Medallion and Classic Award. For a summary of Rose's most important work, see Ridgewood.
