THE HORTICULTURAL HIGHLIGHT OF THE SEASON FOR GARDENERS & GARDEN LOVERS
This years event features the following sessions on Saturday June 11, 9am-12pm:
David Hocker, FASLA: “Capturing the Spirit of the Modern Garden”
David Hocker will discuss how his individual influences and process intertwine to successfully capture the spirit of the modern garden through design. The creation and documentation of 5 gardens of various scale will be explored and viewed through the lens of the landscape architect. Each meticulously detailed garden responds to unique design challenges with
responsible, innovative solutions that establish the landscape as a cohesive link between architecture and site.
Joe Wahler, ASLA: “Relationships in Making Gardens for our time”
Joe Wahler will share STIMSON’s background, range of projects, and approach to collaborative participation in the process of making landscapes for our time. He will lead the audience through Heritage Museums and Gardens’ Flume Fountain discussing each project through construction,
details, design, and initial site walks to uncover the discussions, explorations, decisions, changes, and contributions of the realized project.
Laurie Olin, FASLA – OLIN: “Steering from Pole to Pole: Forces at Play in Making Contemporary Landscape”
For decades, Laurie Olin has quoted J.B. Jackson’s update of the Vitruvian triad in his lectures and classes: “Every American is entitled to an environment that is environmentally healthy, socially just, and continuously aesthetically pleasing”, while striving to produce landscape projects that embody such principles and are also of our time and modern in their expression, ranging from early projects such as Bryant Park and Battery Park City in New York, through parks and gardens, campus and corporate work, to institutions such as the J. Paul Getty Center and the National Gallery of Art. In this talk he’ll discuss the competing demands of ecology, community, resilience, equity, health, aesthetics, beauty, and delight — how heeding them, while attempting balance between such powerful forces, continues to shape his concerns and work, with examples from recent and
current ongoing projects.
