Something very special is in store at Longwood Gardens...

In conjunction with this year’s meeting of the American Society of Landscape Architects in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, TCLF will host a private, curated excursion to the incomparable Longwood Gardens, one of the world’s truly great gardens and horticultural centers.

Enjoy an exclusive morning strolling through the Conservatory with today’s great design thinkers and an early afternoon fueled by the power and poetry of water. Join esteemed landscape architects Adriaan Geuze, Kim Wilkie, and Isabelle Greene, along with renown fountain designer James Garland, architects Marion Weiss and Michael Manfredi, and Longwood’s Senior Executive Staff led by Paul B. Redman, President and Chief Executive Officer. This “think tank” will provide perspectives on how they’re working together to create a world apart experience while honoring its rich legacy, never-before shared with the public in this way. Expect an intimate day full of inspiration through thoughtful dialogue, beautiful gardens, fountain shows, music, and fine fare.

Upon returning to the city, attendees will be taken to a reception in honor of landscape architect Harriet Pattison at The Harvey and Irwin Kroiz Gallery at The Architectural Archives of the University of Pennsylvania, School of Design. Ms. Pattison worked with architect Louis Kahn on the Kimbell Museum in Fort Worth, TX, and Four Freedoms Park in New York City.  At the reception, rare original drawings done by Pattison and Kahn for those two projects will be on display.     

Motorcoaches will provide round-trip transportation.

Keep a lookout for further details and an opportunity to register in early March for this event and the reception to follow. The limited spaces are sure to fill quickly!
