Tomales Bay landscape breaks ground!
We are shortlisted, together with Envision Geo, for the Landscape Architecture Foundation's 2021 research grant in honor of Deb Mitchell for our work on practices and protocols of wildfire resilience.
Join us next week at SCI-Arc's Center Advanced Studies in Architecture for Edge Salon #5: On Models. The discussion will focus on the intersection of scientific inquiry and projective practice in models of climate adaptation. David Ruy and Timothy Morton will tune in.
We will be presenting our research on the urbanization of geologically vulnerable landscapes, completed in partnership with the California Geological Survey, at the 16th International Summit on Sustainability in Santiago, Chile. Join us at the Pontifical Catholic University of Chile’s Faculty of Architecture, Design, and Urban Studies 29-30 January.
We are offering a new studio at UCLA Architecture and Urban Design!
The studio, co-taught with architect Christina Tung (Grimshaw), examines adaptive strategies for climate equity in the City of Los Angeles with attention to the public realm, landscape, and urban form. Departing from conceptions of climate adaptation as a practice of systemic adjustment within socio-ecological systems, it focuses, instead, on adaptations of form and material within the built environment. This advanced topics studio is open to MArch and MURP students by lottery enrollment.
LA Forum for Architecture and Design awards the Pamphlet grant for our research on fringe landscapes. Urban Peripheries explores the tensions between core and periphery in practices of climate adaptation.
We are presenting our recent work on the role of design in climate adaptation at the American Institute of Architects annual meeting this year. Join us at AIA!
Join us for a showcase of winter terms projects at RISD from the design workshop In the Milieu of Water. Students will show work exploring climatic risks and vulnerabilities across a range of geographic and cultural contexts as part of the thesis seminar and attendent design workshops.
We are presenting our work on practices of landscape resilience at the American Society of Landscape Architects annual meeting in Philadelphia this year. Join us at ASLA!
Lower Manhattan garden nears completion.
Honored to offer a new course at RISD this year!
Research Methods in Design explores the convergence of scientific inquiry and design practice in contemporary culture. It builds on the rich disciplinary histories of landscape architecture and urban design as fields of knowledge and inquiry allied with both arts and the natural and human sciences. The course gathers sources from across these disciplines to reflect on the models of inquiry associated with landscape architecture and urban design as a disciplinary, professional, and cultural realms. Finally, it introduces the modes of thinking and research associated with design culture (design thinking, design research) and examines their history and relevance to contemporary practice.
The seminar program at the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study at Harvard University, a leading center for interdisciplinary research, supports collaboration to explore early-stage ideas. The exploratory seminar, Data, Design, Decision, organized with Robert Pietrusko and Charles Waldheim, will convene practitioners to discuss the evolving role of spatial analytics and decision-support tools in urban planning and design. Registration is open with invitation to the seminar.
