Notes:
In 1958, using large stones from a Japanese garden installed in the Museum of Modern ARt in New York City, David Engel created an intimate garden. A stone path leads from the house to a small pond, which is watched over by an antique Cambodian Buddha. Two stone lanterns and a pagoda lead the eye to the surrounding plantings. The impressive stonework and tall trees beyond lend a "quiet dignity to the scene."
Person(s) associated with the garden include:David H. Engel (landscape architect, 1958).
Summary:
The folders include worksheets, photocopies of articles about the garden, and a garden plan.
