Michael Van Valkenburgh gives MVVA background at community meeting

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.

The debates were titled – AND NOW WHAT: Rethinking Spatial Practice During Crisis. The Architecture Foundation recently posted the video on Vimeo. Interesting to watch with many valid points to think about the built environment profession.
