Dreams & the Dream Landscape

Feb 5, 2014

comstock-4Former Director of Landscape Design for Walt Disney Imagineering, Paul Comstock will present “Dreams & the Dream Landscape” on Thursday, February 6th at the Arboretum.

Paul’s presentations are always mind-boggling! Don’t miss this entertaining story of one designer’s adventurous process for creating fantastic and beautiful landscapes from the ground up. 

Comstock was chief landscape architect and designer of Disney’s Animal Kingdom in Orlando, Florida and project-wide director of landscape design for the Hong Kong Disney Resort. He also designed landscape “enhancements” and “was instrumental in the new master plan” of Dodgers stadium.

Comstock’s success is due in large part from making botanical expeditions to more than 70 countries. During these travels, he located, collected and brought back live, stunning, and rare specimens of the plant kingdom for the purpose of authenticating the environments he was charged with creating. Some of these uniquely spectacular plants can be found at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, where he has been involved in seven projects over 35 years. (UCLAExtension)
