"Native nature poet" landscape architect Jens Jensen



    After our last post, I heard from these filmmakers. More information on their website, including a way to donate to help them complete this one-hour documentary. Look for the finished project on PBS.

    "I felt a great force arise from these flatlands." - Jens Jensen

    He worked with Louis Sullivan, Albert Kahn, and Frank Lloyd Wright, who called him, "a native, nature poet."

    His design work can be seen in Chicago in Lincoln Park, Douglas Park, and Columbus Park. In the 1910's Jensen also helped preserve part of the Indiana Dunes sand dune ecosystem.

    His understanding of the prairie and his work there, continues to affect the lives of everyone who lives in the Midwest.
