Toward an Urban Ecology

This is a past event.

Kate Orff, the Founding Principal of SCAPE, will present The John R. Schwartz Architecture Lecture on Thursday, October 14, at 5:30 p.m. in Gamble Auditorium (Art Building, Mount Holyoke College). In this lecture, Kate will present SCAPE’s approach to landscape design, demonstrating how to move beyond familiar and increasingly outmoded ways of thinking about environmental, urban, and social issues as separate domains; and advocating for the synthesis of practice to create a truly urban ecology. A range of participatory and science-based strategies will be discussed and shown in the lecture through the lens of the office’s work, featuring projects, collaborators, and design methods that advance urban ecological design.
