Speakers: James Doyle, Founder and Principal, Doyle Herman Design Associates and Kathryn Herman, Principal, Doyle Herman Design Associates

James Doyle and Kathryn Herman will share images and work from their new book, The Landscape Designs of Doyle Herman Design Associates. It features the firm’s varying projects which illustrate the strong geometry, bold structural forms and clean symmetry, along with richly detailed and thoughtful design that are hallmarks of the firm’s work.

james-doyleJames Doyle has developed an award winning design business with projects in the United States, Europe and the Middle East. Prior to 1993, Mr. Doyle was head of a Russell Page Garden in Ireland and has combined his horticultural experience and strong design philosophy to bring to life unique and innovative landscapes. Projects have ranged from small courtyards to large country estates and the firm was named the 2010 APLD International Designer of the year.

Traveling and visiting gardens worldwide has greatly influenced Mr. Doyle’s work and allowed him to develop both contemporary and traditional designs. He has guided the firm to a growing collection of awards and has lectured to private groups and conferences both nationally and internationally. He co-authored the firm’s monograph, The Landscape Designs of Doyle Herman Design Associates, and he currently serves on the Architectural Review Committee of the town of Greenwich.

Ms. Herman’s strong horticultural background and intense interest in architecture, as well as extensive travel around the world, has informed her design work on various residential and commercial landscape design projects throughout the United States, Europe and the Middle East. Successful landscape designs have garnered several Palladio Awards and numerous other awards, and many of the firm’s projects have been published in the U.S. and abroad. In 2012, Ms. Herman was elected into the New England Design Hall of Fame for her contributions to landscape design in the New England region.

Ms. Herman received her B.A. from Emory University. She has lectured throughout the U.S. and has served as the garden writer for several magazines, as well as co-authoring the firm’s monograph.

Event Description:

Squeeze in a bit of quality education this summer by visiting Boscobel for an outdoor experience that promises muskets, memories and more! canon

 

Since 1804, Boscobel House has witnessed much of America’s and the Hudson River Valley’s past. Its founder, loyalist States Morris Dyckman worked for the British Quartermaster Department during the American Revolution. His Federal-style home stood during the War of 1812, and its family produced a military man, Lieutenant Peter Corne Cruger (Company A, 6th Regiment, Heavy Artillery, NY) who fought for the Union and was mortally wounded in the Battle of Cedar Creek, VA during the Civil War.

 

horseTo honor its ties to such legendary wars, Boscobel will present, “The Dyckman Family at War: An Encampment of Soldiers from the American Revolution through the Civil War” on Sunday, August 30. Starting at 11am and ongoing until 4pm, reenactors from the three wars will demonstrate military camp life including tactical weapon demonstrations, inspections, formations, musket firings, artillery demonstrations and drills, all which take place on the grounds of Boscobel House & Gardens, overlooking the majestic Hudson River and the U.S. Military Academy at West Point.

 

Plus, to commemorate the sesquicentennial of the Civil War, the 6th New York Independent Battery will fire its Parrott cannon to salute Boscobel’s neighbor, The West Point Foundry Preserve where the guns were made.

FREE with your paid admission to Boscobel.

This is a rain or shine event.
