Todd Longstaffe-Gowan

Landscape architect Todd Longstaffe-Gowan discusses his role in the design and making of the Morgan Library & Museum's new garden which opened to the public in June 2022, touching on the history of the site, the design objectives, his sources of inspiration and the practicalities of building what he describes as 'a whiff of Rome in Midtown Manhattan'. Longstaffe-Gowan is the author of English Garden Eccentrics: Three Hundred Years of Extraordinary Groves, Borrowings, Mountains and Menageries (2022). Cosponsored by The Garden Conservancy. 

The Morgan Garden will be open 5-6 PM for lecture attendees (weather permitting).
