I’m leaving tomorrow for 11 days of travel visiting friends and attending design conferences in two midwest cities – Chicago and Detroit. I’m excited to visit both places but for different reasons. I’m visiting friends and attending a short conference about building landscapes at the Chicago Botanical Garden. What do I want to see? Great contemporary architecture and gardens by Roy Diblick and Piet Ouldolf. I also want to eat some great food – Chicago has awesome food.
When that’s over, I’m driving to Detroit to visit more friends and attend the annual APLD Int’l Landscape Design conference. What do I want to see? Everything good and bad. I’m fascinated by Detroit’s possibilities. I’m super excited to get my retail on at Detroit Garden Works and spend some time with Debra Silver before the conference starts.
