Designing Green Cities – Landscape-based Urbanism
With speakers from Toronto and Geneva, among others, we kick off the lecture series 2023 at TU Delft.
Last year, we organised a successful lecture series on designing green cities. This year, we are continuing this successful formula. We will organise a series of three lectures once again with engaging, international speakers.
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.
