Event Type:Lecture
Door Time:Doors Open at 1:00PM


Second generation landscape designer Martin Wirtz shares family history and firm philosophy in exploring the inspiration for balancing classic formality with contemporary garden style. Whether designing gardens for public spaces, corporate headquarters, museums, royal families, or private clients, the Wirtz name is synonymous with bold gestures, sculptural hedges, and unexpected plant selection. Each design is one of a kind yet recognizable with iconic Wirtz details. Martin’s father, the late Jacques Wirtz, founded Wirtz International and was compared to André le Nôtre, the designer of the gardens of Versailles. For the past 25 years, Martin, and brother Peter, have led Wirtz International and received worldwide acclaim for projects completed in Europe, Asia and the United States
