Designing Green Cities: Ecological Urbanism


24.11.2022 Faculty of Architecture and The Built Environment - Delft University of Technology - Lecture Room B

Designing Green Cities: Ecological Urbanism

This lecture series offers designerly perspectives on greening cities and bridges theory and practice in landscape architecture, urban design, urban forestry and urban ecology. The series addresses the integrative and exploratory capacities of design through illuminating discourses that take the landscape as basis to create healthy, climate proof and socio-ecologically inclusive cities. Speakers from practice and academia exchange ideas and showcase practical applications of landscape-based urbanism, forest urbanism and ecological urbanism.
