Inspiring lecture by renowned landscape designer, Deborah Nevins.
The Stavros Niarchos Park in Athens
A 40 acre sustainable, drought tolerant, park and an education working in horticultural zones 4 to 13.
Deborah Nevins founded the New York-based landscape design firm Deborah Nevins & Associates over 25 years ago. Her firm’s work includes the 40-acre Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center and Park in Athens (a collaboration with Renzo Piano Building Workshop) and the recently completed campus expansion of the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, including new buildings by Steven Holl Architects. DNA also designed the Pritzker Garden in the Renzo Piano-designed Modern Wing at the Art Institute of Chicago. The firm’s extensive residential work includes significant gardens and estates throughout the United States, the Caribbean, and Europe—and many on Long Island. DNA’s work has been recognized for its design and sustainability by major publications and landscape associations, including a leadership award from the International Green Roof Association for the SNFCC in Athens. A historian of landscape and architecture, Nevins lectures often, and her writing has appeared in numerous books, journals, and periodicals. She lives in East Hampton and is a board member of Long House Reserve.
