D. Fairchild Ruggles

May 26 - June 7, 2005

‘Dede’ Ruggles, an art and architectural historian, is one of the very few internationally recognized scholars of non-Western landscapes and the built environment. She has published extensively on Islamic landscapes in Spain and India and is recognized for her highly interdisciplinary approach to researching the built environment. During her residency at Shangri La, she continued her research into Islamic landscapes and how they have inspired non-Muslims to create uniquely beautiful gardens. Ruggles, an associate professor of landscape architecture at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, received her Ph.D. from the University of Pennsylvania.
