Virtual Talk: Beyond Wild - Gardens and Landscapes with Raymond Jungles
December 2, 2021
02:00 PM - 03:00 PM
For almost 40 years, Raymond Jungles, FASLA, has created design solutions that respond to surrounding natural systems while restoring nature’s balance and harmony on a micro-scale. His completed gardens from the mountains in Mexico to volcanic craters in Panama, Caribbean beachfronts, the Florida Keys, and densely populated cities like Manhattan and Miami, personify timelessness and beauty, entice participation, and soothe the psyche. Raymond is honored to present his most impactful projects to date, many of which are featured in his book Beyond Wild: Gardens and Landscapes, the fourth monograph to focus on his innovative yet classic designs.
In this final webinar in our four-part Fall 2021 Literary Series, Raymond will share sketches, site plans, renderings, and images that evolve through a project’s lifecycle and capture his design principles of integrity, relevance, and honoring nature. He will discuss his relentless passion for restoring pre-existing ecologies and ethical stewardship of the land.
The Fall 2021 Literary Series is presented by the newly established Frank and Anne Cabot Society for Planned Giving, in partnership with Phaidon and Monacelli.
Additional support for these programs is provided by Celia Hegyi, the Coleman and Susan Burke Distinguished Lecture Fund, and the Lenhardt Education Fund.
