Winter Lectures: House & Garden 


Madoo Conservancy is pleased to announce House & Garden, our winter lecture series. The three lectures pair noted landscape architects with architects to discuss the ins and outs of their relationships, from renovating properties to ground-up construction. How a house sits in its landscape and its effect on the environment is of crucial importance. Likewise, the design of a house can have a tremendous impact on a property. Bringing the two disciplines together to create a harmonious whole is crucial in today’s environment. Join us for these dialogues in the summer studio, followed by Bob’s famous Bloody Marys in the red living room.

Madoo in Manhattan 

Transformational Gardens

Dr. Nigel Dunnett, FLI 

Madoo in Manhattan returns with Professor Nigel Dunnett, FLI just off his recent success with the Tower of London Superbloom (above) in 2022. Join us for an en evening with Nigel exploring the transformational power of gardens, and learn about his own creative approach, emphasizing planting design as an art-form, tuned to nature, and considering public projects as well as his own private garden. The idea of ‘the garden’ has never been more important. It’s where ideas, people and nature come together, in a safe space, interacting, mixing, meeting, mingling—creating new, surprising, unexpected energies, and different communities, at a human scale. Making, experiencing, nurturing, contributing to, learning from, participating in, being part of a garden is the ultimate and most engaging expression of the relationship between people and nature that we can have in the city. It’s a place where lives are changed.

Nigel Dunnett is Professor of Planting Design and Urban Horticulture in the Department of Landscape Architecture at the University of Sheffield, and is a leading voices on innovative approaches to planting design. He is a plantsman, designer and pioneer of the new ecological approach to planting gardens and public spaces. His work revolves around the integration of ecology and horticulture to achieve low-input, high-impact landscapes that are dynamic, diverse, and tuned to nature. His most recent book is The Essential Guide to Naturalistic Planting Design (Filbert Press).
