The exhibition highlights the importance of landscape in shaping our

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,

the exhibition will highlight the importance of investing in green infrastructure if
our cities are to become more liveable, healthy and safe.
