This book signing event will offer an inclusive inside look at the recently published book, Garden Legacy: The Residential Landscapes of Design Workshop. The book explores landscape design of the American West by profiling the residential landscape architecture of Design Workshop. The gardens featured are found in some of the most beautiful natural environments in the world: on the boundary of Wyoming’s Teton National Park, in the heart of Colorado’s Rocky Mountains, and in the foothills of the Southwest’s Sonoran Desert. While each garden reveals the special intent of its owners, the collective design philosophy for the gardens emphasizes a respect for the natural landscape and a desire to preserve, through views, reflections, and the celebration of natural features, the inherent beauty found in each place.
Richard Shaw, a partner with Design Workshop, who led the effort for publishing the book will be at the event to sign copies of the book and discuss in detail the design philosophy behind the gardens profiled.
