Join The New York Botanical Garden in Manhattan for a fascinating evening series starting October 5 that explores how ingenuity and deep insights are re-imagining urban landscape design. This year’s featured landscape architects Barbara Aronson, Ken Smith, and Peter Walker respond to a wide range of conditions and aesthetic demands by redefining beauty, fusing influences, and even challenging the notion of space itself. They’ll showcase their signature projects and working methods in this three-part series at Scandinavia House.
