Landscape Architecture Symposium - Breaking Urban: Designing for the Community

Landscape Architecture Symposium - Breaking Urban: Designing for the Community presented by the University of Delaware’s Bachelor of Science in Landscape Architecture program, the Delaware Center for Horticulture, and the Delaware Nature Society

 

More than half the world’s population live in cities, and that number is expected to grow to 66% by 2050. Can landscape architecture respond to this  changing dynamic to create urban spaces for people to live and thrive? This symposium will follow the creation of vibrant urban landscapes from conception through design and installation, addressing management concerns and focusing on the importance of community involvement throughout the entire process. Join UD’s Landscape Architecture program as we explore urban design with a diverse and engaging set of speakers. Our program will take place in the newly renovated DCH, where student design work will be on display. The day will culminate with a tour held at DNS’s DuPont Environmental Education Center on the Wilmington waterfront.
