The James Rose Center, a non-profit landscape research and study foundation in Ridgewood, NJ, is now open for the 2021 season. The Center was formerly the home of landscape architect James Rose, built in 1953 for himself and family members. Known for its unique modern spatial language, its expression of an alternative approach to conventional post-war suburban residential development and as the constantly changing laboratory of one of landscape architecture’s most inventive minds, the James Rose site is one of the 20th-century’s most important landscapes. The site is open for visits through October 31 and group tours are available by appointment. Visit the James Rose Center website for more information on tours and open hours.
