Let’s Talk About the Birds and the Bees

Melissa Reavis Lectures at the ICAA 

When was the last time you talked about the birds and the bees? This engaging talk by Melissa Reavis, residential studio director of Hollander Design Landscape Architects, may encourage you to have a new kind of design conversation. Drawing on the firm’s inspiring design portfolio of residential properties around the world, Reavis leaves no doubt about the imperatives and possibilities for designing healthy landscapes that benefit insects, plants, animals and humans. Reavis will show how biodiversity in residential garden settings can be designed within any aesthetic and enhance the overall experience of a landscape and its connection to architecture.



This lecture is presented as part of the Bunny Mellon Curricula at the Institute of Classical Architecture & Art.
