ONE GARDEN AT A TIME: EXPLORING THE AESTHETICS OF LANDSCAPE EXPERIENCE
IN THE AGE OF SUSTAINABILITY
2010 DESIGN COMPETITION AND EXHIBITION
On Display June 5, 2010 - Sept 3, 2010
Available now for traveling exhibition (contact:
Through a juried competition, the exhibition assembles contemporary projects achieving the goal of exploring green technologies within the context of the aesthetics of human landscape experience on small residential sites. The emphasis is on how emerging sustainable strategies and tactics are used to create human landscape experiences that are beautiful, inspiring, perhaps profound; and which might serve as examples for transforming the suburban residential fabric, one garden at a time. The exhibition is open to view Tuesday through Sunday, 10 am - 4 pm. The exhibition catalog can be purchased at The James Rose Center or from our online bookstore.
The opening reception at the James Rose Center's Suburbia Transformed exhibition has been captured in a video by Marshall Katzman at RidgewoodPatch. Interviews include Billie Cohen, Dean Cardasis, Matt Burgermaster, Joseph Volpe, Matthew Urbanski, Todd Haiman, and Matthew Cunningham.
SUBURBIA TRANSFORMED is co-sponsored by Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey; American Society of Landscape Architects New Jersey Chapter; and Garden Design Magazine.
