Is Planting Design Really A Core Skill for 21st Century Landscape Architecture?
Thursday, October 3, 6:30 p.m.
20 West 44th Street
New York

As landscape architects, we spend a considerable amount of time discussing a response to climate change, species and seasonal richness, and place-identity. Constructing these narratives is one thing, but how do we respond creatively to these ideas with planting? Often the same plant palettes are used to interpret all narratives, even though there is a passion for diversity in vegetation. This lecture provides the needed tools to bring these discussions into fruition with implementation. More information.
