The Power of Design.

Longue Vue’s house and gardens were designed, in tandem, to blend beauty with community responsibility. Upon moving to the site in 1922, Edith and Edgar Stern famously activated their home towards civic engagement during their lifetimes then left us the gift and responsibility of continuing their work in beautiful built and natural spaces.

For more than 30 years the Design Symposium has welcomed renowned designers focusing on interior and exterior spaces and the intersection between the two. This year, the Symposium returns to the grounds of Longue Vue with featured speakers Edwina von Gal and Cathy Kincaid. Proceeds from the Design Symposium will support Longue Vue’s Centennial Renewal Campaign.

Edwina von Gal is an American landscape designer who focuses on natural, sustainable designs that emphasize the use of native species and natural landscapes.

Cathy Kincaid is a celebrated designer known for her sense of color and attention to design detail, and for creating spaces that are both inviting and livable.
