While living in East Africa I came across a university campus by a little-known Belgian architect named Roger Bastin. Built in Bujumbura, Burundi from 1950-1961, this campus of concrete and steel was set high upon a hill overlooking the city.

YEAR TWO – NATIVE URBAN LANDSCAPE

Posted by on 2/3/14 at 04:04pm

In November 2011 we replanted our grass yard with native plantings. This year was less about the plants and more about the new insects and animals that appeared. We had our first Red Hawk sighting (who ate one of the gold fish in the pond) our first Yellow Garden Spiders, and our first group of Hummingbirds. All of the plants continue to do well. Some of our zero maintenance favorites include Big Muhly, Monterrey Oak and Nolina Texana. See the overview of year two below. Click to Read More

LA side trips

My sojourn by the sea consisted of morning yoga classes and afternoons walks by the sea with a few further away excursions. One highlight was a visit to dosa 818. dosa is a clothing, accessories + housewares line designed by Christina Kim. Click to Read More
