So often we tend to think about a historic structure, without paying much attention to the landscapes, gardens, and green infrastructure that surround it. It’s important to remember that a building is more than just a structure. A building is part of a built environment, and if that environment doesn’t pay tribute to the historic structure, then there is a problem at hand. Why? Because a sense of place… or a sense of space… examines the entire picture, instead of focusing in on one design element.
On Thursday, March 9 at 6pm, designer and horticulturist Matthew Dore will lead a conversation that broaches the subject of introducing welcoming and thoughtful places by creating thoughtful and inspiring landscapes. Dore is of the belief that we can do more when it comes to paying attention to our landscaped surroundings, as they pertain to our historic sense of place. Through Buffalo Horticulture, Dore is able to affect change in the real world, by digging in and getting his hands dirty. The outcome is never less than top notch as it pertains to environmental stewardship and historic sensitivity.
