New Directions in the American Landscape (NDAL) Symposium
A Virtual Symposium 2022
Expanding the Scope of Landscape Design:
People, Ecology & Time
Thursday and Friday, January 20 & 21
Thursday and Friday, January 27 & 28
1 - 4:30 p.m.
The 2022 Ecological Landscape Symposium will be held virtually and spread over four interactive half-days.
Landscape designers who successfully employ an ecology-based approach typically draw from a variety of sources. The inextricable link between people and ecology only increases the need to broaden their investigative lens. Join us as we explore the integration of ecology-based design with people-based factors, including the lingering effects of historic land use and the need to accommodate diverse cultural perspectives on the meaning of “ecology.”
Raymond Jungles - Miami-based Landscape Architect, noted for his work and the influence Roberto Burle Marx, the "Master Modernist," has had on it
W. Gary Smith - Landscape Architect whose work weaves together ecological and cultural themes, more recently involving environmental art
Gena Wirth - Designer who translates research into practice and reveals the ecological and cultural potential of public landscapes
Sara Zewde - Landscape Architect and professor devoted to creating enduring places where people belong
