"Filippine Garden"
Thomas F. Eagleton, U.S. Courthouse
St. Louis, Missouri

"Across the street from the Thomas F. Eagleton U.S. courthouse, painter Valerie  Jaudon created an environment that is a work of art, as well as a beautiful and pleasurable garden. She applied the precise pattern language that distinguishes  her paintings to the layout, and the result is a contemporary interpretation of  European formal gardens. In recognition of U.S. district Judge edward Filippine's enormous contribution to the project, Jaudon titled her work Filippine Garden.  The central focus of Jaudon's design is the elegant formal garden composed of manicured grass parterres defined by interlacing stone dust pathways trimmed with white stone."
