How Gardens Tell the Story of Water through the Lens of Place
August 22 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Tenna Florian, Associate Architect at Lake Flato Architects, will highlight four gardens from diverse climates—Phipps Conservatory in Pittsburgh; Naples Garden in Naples, Florida; Santa Fe Botanical Garden in Santa Fe; and Shangri La Botanical Garden in Orange, Texas—to demonstrate how each garden integrated the celebration of water into their landscapes. Florian will discuss the designing process of these water systems, how they are integral to the garden experience, how the story of water can also be a story of place, and the lessons learned. Participants will gain a better understanding of the value of water features, new perspectives on engaging the public around the issue of water, and a new appreciation for the way the story of water is told in the San Antonio Botanical Garden. Sponsored by San Antonio Water System.
