DESCRIPTION

Join renowned landscape designer Mario Nievera to celebrate the launch of his new book, Forever Green (Pointed Leaf Press, 2012). Nievera will present an illustrated tour of some of the iconic New York landscapes -- from Central Park to the High Line -- that have inspired his work. The extraordinary range of designs he's created for civic spaces, parks, and residential estates across the country include his restoration of Old Trees, an early 20th century Southampton estate and a corporate rooftop garden text to Bergdorf Goodman. This is a unique opportunity to explore how landscape architecture can draw on an urban aesthetic.
