Landscape Design Students & Alumni Series: David Maynes

Tuesday, January 17, 2023

1 – 2 p.m. | Online

Holistic Design Thinking

Maine-based landscape architect David Maynes creates spaces that encourage people to actively engage with the ecological processes that unfold around them. For him, a client’s perception of the landscape is just as important as a plant palette; a landscape’s edges and transitions create opportunities; and a site’s details are the bridge that foster connection between people and landscapes. Join Maynes for a wide-ranging discussion about the natural materials he uses-from sustainably sourced wild sods to local stone-and the many principles that guide his work.
