Please join us for a panel discussion featuring some of the world’s leading practitioners of landscape architecture, architecture and urban design sharing thoughts related to the complex weave of manmade and natural systems. The panel will review innovative design strategies for the reclamation of brownfields and other disturbed landscapes, and discuss a variety of approaches for their reuse. Speakers will also address the challenges of large-scale development projects that require cooperation between communities and public and private organizations. Examples range from the adaptive re-use project of Brooklyn Bridge Park to the grounds of the Sydney Olympics, among other projects.
This event is free to the public, however RSVPs are required:
