This Is How We Do It invites leading landscape architects and urban designers to describe their design and research practices. From the social and cultural focus of The Decorators to the large scale designs of Collective Urban Strategies the lectures will present a diversity of approaches in how landscapes and cities are explored and designed. Speakers will present a critical reflection on how they work; they will describe the motivations behind their decisions; and they will reveal the contrasting trajectories of their projects.
All the lectures begin at 5:00pm at the University of Greenwich Stockwell Street building, SE10 9BD, in lecture theatre 11_0004. The lectures are free to attend and open to the public.

Landscape Architecture and Urbanism at the University of Greenwich (BA, MA, MLA, MSc and PhD) is focused on the speculative design of landscapes, cities and territories informed by research into the relations between site-specific conditions and wider societal, political and environmental questions. The University of Greenwich is the only university in London teaching Landscape Architecture from Bachelors (BA) to Masters (MA, MLA, MSc) and on to PhD. Landscape Architecture at Greenwich was established in 1965 with programmes professionally accredited by the Landscape Institute.
