Susana Rojas Saviñón and Hortense Blanchard share what makes their Mexico City practice unique, including their use of aromatic, edible, medicinal, and native Mexican plants, some of which they propagate from wild seeds they collect. The pair will discuss their award-winning Forest Garden, a residential landscape located within an ecological reserve that features a vegetable garden, natural pool, and fern garden. They will also provide a look at Lava Garden, which turned a lawn-covered suburban backyard into a lush oasis that realigns the garden with the land’s original volcanic ecology and the house’s midcentury modernist architecture.

Led by Susana Rojas Saviñón and Hortense Blanchard, Estudio Ome designs gardens that strike the perfect balance between what is built and what is alive. The recipient of Mexico’s 2020 Young Creators Grant and Professor at Mexico City’s Universidad Iberoamericana, Rojas Saviñón holds a MPhil in Architecture and Urban Design. A French landscape architect, Blanchard previously worked for Dan Pearson, Rozana Montiel, and Irène Djao Rakitine.

Continuing Education credits (CEUS) for LA CES and APLD are offered for successful completion of this lecture.
