Evening with Hermann Park Architect Peter Bohlin
In celebration of Hermann Park's Centennial in 2014, the Houston Parks and Recreation Department (HPARD) and the Hermann Park Conservancy have worked together to enhance the park, with more projects to come. The Houston Garden Center is set to be transformed into the Centennial Gardens, a lushly planted landscape destined to become a favorite spot for Houstonians.
Award-winning architect Peter Bohlin has been selected to design the entry pavilion for the Centennial Gardens. The Museum of Fine Arts Houston and the Hermann Park Conservancy will co-sponsor a lecture and discussion with Mr. Bohlin, where he will talk about his design philosophy and the plans for Hermann Park. The discussion will be moderated by Sarah M. Whiting, Dean of the Rice School of Architecture.
