A Japanese Garden in Vancouver: NitobeMay.07.2018
Throughout history, people have sought connections with nature. In particular, designers have observed nature, investigated its materials, and abstracted its forms and qualities.
The Garden of Secrets, a collaborative project between TEALEAVES and UBC Botanical Garden, dives into the realm of plant-inspired biomimicry and biophilic design with the goal of celebrating nature beyond its edible, visual and medicinal properties.
As Director of the UBC Botanical Garden, including the Nitobe Memorial Garden, Patrick Lewis is responsible for the leadership and strategic direction of the Garden. This includes the development, oversight, organization and financial management of the unit, and the management of professional and support staff, including curatorial, horticultural, and administrative, and contact staff.
#OverACupOfTealeaves: At TEALEAVES, we believe that the best “condiment” to any cup of TEALEAVES is a story to tell and wisdom to share.
