The Jellicoe Lecture and LI AGM will take place on 16th October 2014
The Landscape Institute and the Department of Architecture and Landscape at the University of Greenwich present the UK premier of a new film, Water Blues Green Solutions, recently released in the US.
This collaboration brings together the LI’s annual Jellicoe Lecture with the Hawksmoor International Lectures at the University of Greenwich where Sir Geoffrey Jellicoe once taught.
Water Blues Green Solutions is a 60-minute documentary telling stories about real people solving their water blues with green solutions in four cities across America. The screening will be followed by a Q&A with producer/director Frank Christopher, producer Cheraine Stanford and Landscape Institute Immediate Past President Sue Illman.
All are welcome at this annual event celebrating landscape architecture.
About the film
Produced by Penn State Public Media, Water Blues Green Solutions is part of an initiative designed to promote public education and awareness of green infrastructure and how natural processes can interface with and complement existing grey or manmade infrastructure.
The integrated approach to water and green infrastructure promoted by the film will be of interest to landscape architects. Its goal of informing and empowering citizens to participate in the development of place-specific strategies for addressing such issues is inspiring.
About the venue
The event will be held at the brand-new home of the University of Greenwich’s Department of Architecture & Landscape. The Stockwell Street building opens this autumn and includes the UK’s largest landscape roofs dedicated to research and teaching. The building has been designed to encourage new thinking and creativity and has been awarded two prestigious BREEAM innovation credits.
