If you haven't been to the Lurie Garden in downtown Chicago, what are you waiting for? It is my favorite public garden in Chicago. The Lurie Garden has a complex set of characters involved in the design and implementation of the original and continually evolving vision for this "roof top garden" that covers part of the railway that travels to and from the Loop.

Next week, Terry Guen of Terry Guen Design will be leading a lecture titled, "Implementing the Design for the Lurie Garden." Ms. Guen was the local landscape designer who worked to implement the entire design of Millenium Park, including the five acre Lurie Garden. The perspective of Ms. Guen is sure to be an interesting one - making the designer's vision work in the actual space that is now the Lurie Garden. Find out more about Ms. Guen and the other designers here.

Terry Guen's lecture is part of an ongoing, free evening series coordinated by Lurie Garden. Start time is 6pm on Thursday, July 15th. The presentation will be at the Chicago Cultural Center's Millenium Park Room (fifth floor) at 78 East Washington St. in Chicago.
