The James Rose Center
Drag box to select area
An unconventional landscape architect who defied institution and has come to represent the modernist movement in landscape theory and architecture along with Garret Eckbo and Dan Kiley, James Rose left to Ridgewood, his home. He delivered this work from an idea he conceived while in Okinawa serving in World War II and it was constructed finally in 1953. The Center is a living monument to his idea that a residence could be "neither indoors nor outdoors, but both, and neither landscape nor architecture, but both."
