“On-the-Ground”: Acting on Research, Studio and Design Strategies

Department of Landscape Architecture, Rutgers University FALL 2019 |  Instructor: Anita Bakshi

Friday, February 5, 2021

3:00 - 4:30pm ET / 12:00 - 1:30 PM PT

Landscape architects and other design professionals and educators come together to address racial injustice and equity in the places they teach and the communities they serve. Often the immensity of the problem mutes the actions one takes. This panel of design thought leaders will discuss and demonstrate how landscape architecture as a field of study and practice can reach beyond its academic and professional limits to research issues, design spaces and programs, and engage with communities in long-term commitments as equal participants in a civil and equitable society. Following the opening presentations, there will be moderated breakout discussions.
