Save the Date! 33rd Annual Landscape Symposium

Expanding the Scope of Landscape Design:
Ecology, People, & Time

Virtually held on:
Thursday and Friday, January 20 & 21, 2022
Thursday and Friday, January 27 & 28, 2022

1 – 4:30 PM EST
(includes instructional time & breaks)

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 the 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.”

Featured speakers:

Raymond Jungles will discuss the work of world-famous modernist landscape designer, Roberto Burle Marx, and how his long association with Marx affected his own work.

W. Gary Smith will describe how environmental art has influenced his design practice, and how its immediacy can reflect natural processes of change in the landscape.

Robin Veder—Using the landscape designs of Beatrice Ferrand, Robin explores the kinesthetic experience people have when walking through her landscape at Dumbarton Oaks.

Gena Wirth, design principal at the firm SCAPE, works with cities, community advocates, and landowners to reveal the ecological and cultural potential of public landscapes.

Sara Zewde, founding principal of Studio Zewde, will discuss techniques her firm uses as they design enduring public places where people feel they belong.
