Join us for an intimate talk with Michael Van Valkenburgh, designer of the Monk’s Garden, who reveals his sketches, models, and the total evolution of the space into the dreamlike, contemplative space we now enjoy. His book, Designing a Garden, also explores the origins of Van Valkenburgh’s love of landscape and the plants in his family farm in Upstate New York, and how this has influenced his intuitions as a designer.
Remarks begin at 6 PM. A book signing will follow.
