Rethinking the Urban Landscape - a travelling exhibition

A major exhibition curated by The Building Centre and Landscape Institute.

exhibition

The exhibition highlights the importance of landscape in shaping our
cities.

Rethinking the Urban Landscape was held at The Building Centre in London earlier this year, and also went to Ecobuild. The exhibition is now touring.

Rethinking the Urban Landscape exemplifies how landscape architecture can offer sustainable solutions to the big challenges facing contemporary urban society including flooding and public health.

Showcasing some of the UK’s most powerful contemporary landscape
projects including King’s Cross and the Olympic Park, alongside small,
community-led schemes including pocket parks and community allotments,
the exhibition will highlight the importance of investing in green infrastructure if
our cities are to become more liveable, healthy and safe.
