Celebrating Dutch landscape architect Mien Ruys (1904 - 1999).⁣

Mien Ruys is not a familiar name to most people. But for architects, artists, and garden enthusiasts, Mien Ruys is an icon. She was the only female landscape architect of her time; a conceptual artist who collaborated with Rietveld, Bonnema, and Mondriaan. She revolutionized the concept of gardens and gardening and was the major inspiration for the internationally renowned landscape architect Piet Oudolf.⁣
