Abandon Yourself to Design by Tres Fromme
Thursday, November 4 | 6:30 – 7:30 p.m.
How do abstract ideas, needs, and desires take form in the real world? People are very familiar with the product of a successful design process – a beautiful and enjoyable garden. However, they rarely see all the “mysterious” steps and ideas leading up to the final product. What may appear to be a simple and obvious conclusion almost always results from controlled and creative chaos. Garden design involves choreographing dynamic guided interactions between people, plants, and spaces. Successful garden designs intentionally engage our bodies, imaginations, and spirits. In this presentation, the renowned Tres Fromme will describe his experiences with the design process, outlining a basic framework for creating invigorating and compelling gardens of any scale.
