The public and critical recognition of the role of landscape architecture and landscape architects in shaping our shared public realm is growing. However, the cultural value of our shared landscape legacy is often little known or understood, and most arbiters of this legacy (including architecture critics) are often ill-equipped to assess and contextualize it particularly when threats to significant works of landscape architecture arise. The time has come for practitioners to play a key role in expanding this discourse. This presentation will begin by laying out the challenges and opportunities of this current situation and will conclude with several successful project examples (including recent works by West 8 and Raymond Jungles), that meet and exceed the presenter’s challenge to value history and culture at an equivalent level that is often placed on natural and ecological systems.
Reception to follow.
