Innovative landscape architect Ken Smith, designer of MoMA's rooftop garden, will offer his distinct and usually entertaining insights on Isamu Noguchi in this one-time-only Garden Dialogue at The Noguchi Museum with Curator of Research, Matthew Kirsch.

Smith will examine the artistry and practicality of Noguchi's landscape design, from site planning to material choices and spatial arrangement.  He will also contextualize Noguchi's design vocabulary with 20th century landscape architecture and its impact on contemporary practice.

Founded in 1985, The Noguchi Museum was the first museum in America to be established, designed, and installed by a living artist to show his or her own work. Widely viewed as among the artist’s greatest achievements, the Museum comprises ten indoor galleries in a converted factory building, as well as an internationally acclaimed outdoor sculpture garden.

Ken Smith Workshop, which is celebrating its 25th anniversary, creates landscapes that draw on diverse cultural traditions and influences of the contemporary urban landscape.  Smith works on projects of varying scales and types: temporary installations private residential gardens, public spaces, parks and commercial projects. He is an artist, a provocateur and a thoroughly original voice in the world of design.

2.0 LA CES™ Professional development hours will be available to attendees.
