The Lurie Garden Turns 10
July 16, 2014 - In celebration of the Lurie Garden’s 10th year anniversary, Gustafson Guthrie Nichol composed a short video about the landscape design process. The Lurie Garden opened on July 16, 2004 in downtown Chicago’s Millennium Park. The garden hosts 1.5 million visitors a year while offering daily respite to nearby residents and professionals.
The video “The Lurie Garden Turns 10” includes a time-lapse of drawings that show the evolution of the Lurie Garden design. Also featured are short clips of Gustafson Guthrie Nichol founding principals Kathryn Gustafson, Jennifer Guthrie, and Shannon Nichol discussing the Lurie Garden design process.
The credits include a thank you to the client, Millennium Park, Inc. and the project team, including perennial plantsman Piet Oudolf and theater set designer Robert Israel.
