Landscape architecture and regional & community planning department to host colloquium

By Courtney Boman

The landscape architecture and regional & community planning department will host its first presentation in its 2014-2015 colloquium series Friday, Oct. 3.

Jessica Canfield, landscape architecture and regional & community planning assistant professor, will present "A Design-Build Story: Lessons from the Chaumont-sur-Loire 2014 International Garden Festival" at 4:30 p.m. Friday, Sept. 26, in 106c Seaton Hall.

The colloquium will explore Canfield's recent experience in developing a winning design competition entry and collaboratively transforming it into a built reality. Canfield was selected from more than 300 international applicants to bring her design to life for the 2014 Domaine De Chaumont-Sur-Loire International Festival of Gardens in France. This year marks the 22 year for prestigious festival, which showcases approximately 25 temporary gardens each year, designed and installed by an international array of preeminent landscape designers. Canfield's design, "Green without Green," was the only one selected from the United States this year.

The colloquium is open to the public.
