‘…the most influential garden designer of the past 25 years’. – Tom Stuart-Smith, The Daily Telegraph
Piet Oudolf, the internationally renowned landscape designer from the Netherlands, will be giving a talk about his inspiration and practice. Considered one of the most influential garden designers of our time, Oudolf will discuss his unique approach to planting, his love of the changing seasons, environments and context, and the process behind his projects and commissions.
Oudolf has designed the landscaping scheme for Durslade Farm, the site of Hauser & Wirth’s new gallery due to open in Summer 2014. This includes a large perennial meadow to the north of the farmyard, as well as landscaping designs around the buildings, including the newly created inner cloister courtyard where the old buildings will meet with the new.
Oudolf has received many high profile commissions around the world, including working with Peter Zumthor on the Serpentine Pavilion at the Serpentine Gallery in London (2011); The High Line in New York (2009); and a garden for the exhibition ‘No5 Culture Chanel’ at the Palais de Tokyo, Paris (2013). He was awarded an RIBA Honorary Fellowship in February 2013.
