Join founding director of the Conway School, long time landscape architect, and community planner Walter Cudnohufsky, and Design Associate and Conway School Trustee Mollie Babize for a discussion on their most recent book Cultivating the Designer’s Mind. The authors will talk about their design philosophy and process through stories, illustrations, and discussion about the role of conservation in the larger realm of land planning and design. One aim is to enhance the ability to observe and understand the landscape and why we are drawn to particular places. There will be ample time for questions and answers after the talk. Books will be available for sale.
