Colin and Carol Franklin: “Coming into a magic place”

The entrance road that Colin Franklin designed for the Morris Arboretum was, in his words, “the answer to a very difficult planning issue.” But, he added, “it also became a place in itself.”

Recently, I interviewed Colin and his wife Carol in Paul Meyer’s office to hear the story about that road and the master plan they designed for the Arboretum–one the Arboretum continues to follow almost 40 years later.

Colin and Carol are co-founders of the landscape architecture firm Andropogon:
