Summary

A photograph of the sketch of the South Yard landscape design built behind the Smithsonian Institution Building, or "Castle." The South Yard sits at the center of the Quadrangle Building complex, which is made up of the Sackler Gallery, National Museum of African Art, S. Dillon Ripley Center. The complex, with three stories underground, is covered by the Enid A. Haupt Garden which opened in 1987. The landscape design of the Haupt Garden was a collaborative effort of architect Jean Paul Carlhian; Lester Collins, landscape architect from Millbrook, New York; Sasaki Associates Inc. of Watertown, Massachusetts; and James Buckler, founding director of the Smithsonian's Office of Horticulture. The project of building the South Yard was begun in 1979.
