influential designers: dan kiley

All great modernism finds inspiration in the past. As someone, somewhere once said, "all roads lead to Rome."  Landscape Architect Dan Kileys work reflected his belief that both nature and geometry are an essential part of man. But rather than creating imitations of natural settings his work with natural and manmade materials held a strong geometric order. "The challenge is to preserve and feed an open mind, so that nothing is shut out by the walls of preconception."






influential designers: stephen stimson

Landscape Architect Stephen Stimson produces some of the most compelling work in landscape today. Working primarily in the North Eastern United States his designs rely on the use of vernacular and traditional materials in a way that is interpretive rather than kitsch. Each garden looks to the past and to the future. The sublime minimalism works with the natural landscape and the manmade environment.
