At 7pm Monday, October 2nd, come to the Ridgewood Public Library and join Professor Dean Cardasis as he shares the story of James Rose, the famed “James Dean” of landscape architecture. Based on his recent book, James Rose: A Voice Offstage, Professor Cardasis’s talk will put Rose’s ideas in the context of his times and present some of Rose’s important alternatives to conventional suburban residential design, with a special focus on Rose’s own home in Ridgewood. All welcome, no registration required. A tour of the James Rose Center will immediately follow the lecture.
