CUSP Conference organisers recently posted a two part video of Alan Berger’s presentation at the 2009 CUSP Conference on Landscape Waste. An interesting look at landscapes waste resulting from industrial processes.
Alan Berger is Associate Professor of Urban Design and Landscape Architecture at Massachusetts Institute of Technology where he teaches courses in the department of urban studies and planning. He founded and directsP-REX, The Project for Reclamation Excellence (www.theprex.net), a multi-disciplinary research effort at MIT focusing on the design and reuse of deindustrialized landscapes worldwide.
Recently found this video of Michael Van Valkenburgh giving a background to MVVA and their initial approach to the North Grant Park at a community meeting. It is always interesting to see landscape architects presenting their company. The video does have a few edits and is not complete presentation but still worth a watch and will interesting to look back at in 10-20 years.
