Description
Longwood Gardens’ fascinating story as seen through the lenses of the biographer and the landscape architect. Longwood’s expansion and reinvention have continued over the last decade as renowned landscape architecture firm West 8 has led a 40-year master plan and the Main Fountain Garden redesign. West 8’s twin outsider / insider approach sought guidance from universal relationships between humans and topography, cultivation and instinct, and intuitive orientation within the landscape, while simultaneously inviting in the 21st century—in program, design, and spirit
