‘The Meeting Room’ | Maya Lin | Newport USA


The Doris Duke Monument Foundation (DDMF), an offshoot of the Newport Restoration Foundation (NRF), has delivered an installation at Queen Anne Square in Newport, RI, with a dual purpose.

The landscaping was designed by Edwina von Gal, a talented landscape architect whom Maya Lin personally selected for this project.
