Valfredda Seminar

from 9.30am to 6.00pm


Sala Piatti, Città Alta

Another major event is the Valfredda Seminar (22 September), dedicated to one of the most inspiring projects internationally: the Lurie Garden, the secret garden donated by the Lurie family to the city of Chicago.

This is an extraordinary park designed by Piet Oudolf at the beginning of the millennium, in the heart of Millenium Park, considered as one of the most famous and iconic works of contemporary landscaping.

A reference model in the development of sustainable urban projects where the world of architecture merges with that of landscaping, gardening and art drawing places to live and not spaces to fill.
Starting from this case history, other examples of contamination occurred in urban areas where the natural landscape of the place is preserved and enhanced.

Together with Terry Guen, founder of the Chicago design studio Terry Guen Design Associates, and garden designers Roy Diblik and Austin Eischeid, we will take a journey inside this model, discovering together projects, collaborations and relationships that have led to the development of a revolutionary idea of urban landscaping.
