The Dumbarton Oaks Garden and Landscape Studies Colloquium will be hosting the Botanical Gardens and the Urban Future Colloquium on November 2, 2018. Dumbarton Oaks in collaboration with New York Botanical Garden and organized by John Beardsley and Anatole Tchikine, are bringing together historians, landscape designers, and scientists to discuss the changing role of botanical gardens as both landscapes and research and public institutions, especially in urban areas. The role of design in helping botanical gardens meet the challenge of operating as educational and community resources while maintaining their traditional focus on the preservation and study of plants will be a particular focus.
Mikyoung Kim of Mikyoung Kim Design, will be speaking on “Looking to the Future: New Paradigms for Botanic Gardens: The Regenstein Learning Center at the Chicago Botanic Garden and the McIntire Botanic Garden in Charlottesville, VA.
