Speaker Series: Landscape Architecture as a Medium for Strategic Thinking at Waller Creek and Beyond

Join us Wednesday, September 21 at 6:30 pm at the Parlmer Events Center. The landscapes of our world now represent a vast and entangled field of terrains, policies, practices, real estate transactions, and emergent conditions. Yet the medium of landscape is still primarily thought of as a series of aesthetic place-making decisions. Through this lens, Gullivar Shepard will discuss Michael Van Valkenburgh Assosciates Inc’s involvement in complicated landscape contexts and will expose some of the strategic thinking that has enabled the realization
of transformative projects for several growing cities.
