Christine Ten Eyck: Harsh Beauty— Designing the Urban Southwest
Now in its 15th year, the Garden’s popular evening lecture series invites outstanding designers from around the world to discuss their favorite and signature landscape projects, providing insight into their working methods and design philosophies. This year’s speakers share a focus on reclaiming and regenerating urban landscapes—both vast and intimate—from parking lots to public spaces to industrial waterfronts.
Based in Austin, Texas, Christine Ten Eyck works in the spirit of the Southwest to connect urban dwellers with nature through award–winning, transformative landscapes that celebrate regional culture, local species, and the ephemeral paths of water. In addition to her sustainable designs for corporate, university, botanical and private gardens, she will discuss The Capri Lounge in Marfa, Texas, where she converted a former parking lot into a garden, gathering place, and wildlife habitat, incorporating native grasslands and local materials from oil field pipes to farm fencing.
