Land is a vital asset in supporting the food, energy, health, welfare and economic needs of society, yet it is coming under increasing pressure.
How do we create a sustainable landscape, and is this the world we want? How can we build beautiful places, and what stops us from building beautifully? How can we create the rural landscapes we need while protecting the countryside we love?
In its new lecture series, Landscape Futures, the Landscape Institute aims to stimulate debate about the future of the landscape and explore the major themes affecting how our land is used and managed, and how that use will affect the prosperity and quality of life of all citizens.
Lectures will take place around the country between January and April 2014. Each will include a presentation, a response from a leader in a related field and a discussion about the impact on landscape architecture.
All lectures will begin at 6pm and will be followed by drinks.
Tickets: LI / RSA members £8, non-members £10, students £5
Speakers: Tom Armour (Arup Landscape Team), Sue Illman (LI President)
What are the key trends that are shaping the future of landscape architecture and how will they affect the processes, collaborations and designs that practices will need to employ? Our closing lecture will use research into the built environment and social change to look at the future role of landscape architecture in society.
