Landscape Lectures:
Eelco Hooftman

Thursday, September 25, 7:00 PM


Hooftman, together with Bridget Baines, is founding partner of GROSS. MAX. landscape architects, Edinburgh. The firm’s current projects include a master plan to transform Tempelhof Freiheit, Berlin, from a 360-hectare airport into a new public park, and a linear park representing an artificial mountain range in the Central Business District of Beijing. GROSS. MAX. was awarded the 2006 European Landscape Award by Topos magazine.

Landscape Lectures begin at 7 pm in Calderwood Hall. Lectures include Museum admission and require a ticket; tickets can be reserved online, in person at the door, or by phone: 617 278 5156. Museum admission: adults $15, seniors $12, students $5, free for members.

When a lecture sells out, the Museum will offer a limited number of obstructed view seats the night of the event via a signup sheet at the admissions desk. The signup sheet will become available at the desk at 6 pm. We will make every attempt to seat everyone but cannot guarantee a seat once we are at capacity. Seats will be assigned 5 minutes prior to the lecture time. These obstructed view seats will be free of charge.

The 2014-15 Landscape Lectures series is sponsored by an anonymous donor, in honor of Gary Koller, plantsman and garden designer. The Museum receives operating support from the Massachusetts Cultural Council.
