Halprin
A memorial service for Lawrence Halprin, a celebrated modernist landscape architect whose designs include the FDR memorial in Washington and Ghirardelli Square in San Francisco, will be held Dec. 20 at Temple Emanu-El in San Francisco.

Halprin died Oct. 25 at age 93.

His best-known work in Los Angeles may be the Bunker Hill steps, a sweeping staircase that is divided by a raised water channel.
