As part of the launch of the inaugural publication by the Department of Landscape Architecture and Environmental Planning at the University of California at Berkeley, the students and team behind GROUND UP are hosting a panel discussion investigating landscapes of uncertainty.
Featuring Ila Berman, the Director of Architecture at CCA, Douglas Burnham, Principal of envelope AD, Scott Cataffa, Principal at CMG, and Sha Hwang, Design Technologist, Movity-Trulia; the panel and conversation will look at new innovations and trends in landscape architecture, design, and design practice, as well as the influence of technology and data on the current shape of design.
I’m excited to be moderating the panel discussion with these talented practitioners, and our conversation will look at several themes emerging in landscape today: what does it mean to design in uncertain economic and environmental conditions? Do we ever have complete information? How is our practice changing, and how can we continue to design for innovation, both within our walls and outside in our work?
The presentations and panel conversation begins at 7 PM in Wurster Hall, 112 Auditorium, Wednesday, March 21, 2012. The GROUND UP journal launches later this Spring.
