Webinar: Decentering the Euro-centric Design Process: Indigenous Landscape Architecture at the University of New Mexico

Chaco Canyon, New Mexico, study site / Anthony Fettes

In 2011, the Indigenous Design and Planning Institute (iD+Pi) was created by the School of Architecture and Planning, University of New Mexico, with the goal of crafting an initiative to educate and inform Indigenous design and planning. Since 2016, the Indigenous Landscape Architecture Studio at UNM has brought together MLA students and local tribes to engage in design and planning solutions providing an environment for students to unlearn the Euro-centric focus which is prevalent in design education today.

In this webinar, faculty, staff, and students from iD+Pi and the Indigenous Landscape Design Studio will provide a short intro to their programs and share insights regarding the challenges and opportunities in rethinking how we design and collaborate with indigenous communities, followed by a Q&A.
