Farmers, architects, designers and urbanists discuss the intersection of landscape and urban culture.
Can landscape architecture be the driving force for creating contemporary and sustainable cities? How can it contribute to the fundamental infrastructure function and poetic materiality of what cities look like and feel like for communities? What is our urban relationship we have to the natural world? This interdisciplinary discussion brings together multiple practices who are interested in giving more prominence to the design of outside spaces and how the creative process of community engagement and natural systems fit with urban needs for shelter, recreation, sustainable food and our ever growing demands on ecosystems.
Join Michaela MacLeod (Polymétis), Paula Meijerink (WANTED landscape), Ran Goel (Fresh City Farms), and Jay Wall (STUDIO JAYWALL) in conversation with After School moderator Nicola Spunt on the subject of how landscape and design influence urban culture. The interdisciplinary panel will explore how intelligently designed outdoor spaces contribute to the vitality of our cities and community engagement with natural systems can enrich our lives and diminish our untenable demands on water, air, and soil.
