Breaking Urban: Designing for the Community

More than half the world’s population live in cities, and that number is expected to grow to 66 percent by 2050. We have learned that people need a connection to plants and natural areas for health and wellness. Can landscape architecture respond to this changing dynamic to create urban spaces for people to live and thrive? This symposium will follow creation of vibrant urban landscapes from conception, through design and installation as well as address management concerns. We will focus on the importance of community involvement in the entire process.

Join the University of Delaware Landscape Architecture program as we explore urban design with a diverse and engaging set of speakers. Our program will take place in the newly renovated Delaware Center for Horticulture, where student design work will be on display.

The day will culminate with a tour held at the Delaware Nature Society DuPont Environmental Education Center on the waterfront. Friday, September 29, 2017
