Landscape’s Loss

It is a sad day in Chicago landscape history, for internationally-known landscape architect Peter Schaudt, 56, died on July 19. Peter was co-partner in the firm [Doug] Hoerr Schaudt. Here is his obituary, written by Chicago Tribune architecture critic, Blair Kamin.

Blair also wrote a story back in 2011 when Doug’s prairie at Trump Tower in Chicago was ripped out after just one year and replaced with a more conventional garden. It’s wasteful and always shocking to me just how often one designer’s work gets tossed. A sad phenomenon.

Peter was a very great talent. Chicago should be very proud to have had him as our’s.#20150727-peter

    I have lots of black eyed Susan’s and Queen Ann’s Lace cheering up my garden too. Nature’s beauty ! What a gift for all of us. Nice to have people in our lives to help frame it…even if the actual entity we view fades away, we still have a connection to that image and the person framing it. Martha
