Update: Ron Herman joins Christian Tschumi at The Japan Society for discussion on Mirei Shigemori

Author Christian Tschumi will be speaking at the Japan Society about the controversial designer of Zen gardens and subject of Tschumi's new book, 'Mirei Shigemori: Modernizing the Japanese Garden.'

The author will be in a discussion with landscape architect Ron Herman who has created more than four hundred full-scale garden designs in his 35+ year career. Currently Mr. Herman is engaged in the 25-acre Japanese-style village of Oracle CEO Lawrence Ellison and other large estates including residential projects for Joe Montana, Neil Young and numerous other sports, entertainment and high-tech personalities.
