Ethne Clarke, internationally known lecturer and author, will give a richly illustrated talk about mid-twentieth century garden design, the subject of her new book.The Mid-Century Modern Landscape is a fresh guide to the period and filled with inspiration for today’s home garden. Clarke will explore the origins of midcentury modern garden design, revealing how architects like Frank Lloyd Wright and Cliff May, creator of the now ubiquitous ranch house, worked with landscape architects to blur the divisions between indoors and out. Copies of the book will be available for purchase. This event is presented by the Iowa Architectural Foundation and the Greater Des Moines Botanical Garden.
