In this live online broadcast,  JC Miller will present Royston’s work with an emphasis on his residential projects, including his final commission, a series of gardens in Palm Springs.

Robert Royston (1918–2008) was one of America’s most distinguished landscape architects during the post-war period. His design work and university teaching in the years following World War II helped define and establish California landscape modernism. Royston is best known for his public works, especially city parks, however, the San Francisco–based landscape architect also designed innovative gardens over the course of his long and productive career. These outdoor living spaces were enlivened by the shapes and rhythms of modern art and characterized by fine detail, attention to comfort, and beauty.
