During March, the Landscape Architecture and Urbanism programmes at University of Greenwich are organising a series of events to explore future landscape and urban practice. COLLECTIVE LANDSCAPE FUTURES will be three roundtable conversations – with students, graduates, tutors, and guests – discussing prevailing challenges in the design of landscapes and cities and how our collective voices can inform future programmes and practices.
We are delighted to be joined by Julia Watson (author of Lo—TEK. Design by Radical Indigenism), Ben Campkin (Co-Director of the Urban Laboratory, UCL), Ross Exo-Adams (Co-director of Bard Architecture), and Martí Franch Batllori (EMF).
Roundtables will be conducted on Zoom, with places prioritised to students and recent graduates. See future posts on http://www.thelandscape.org for Zoom links.
