The exhibition, “Dialogues on Urbanization: Emerging Landscapes”, examines landscape architecture in the age of planetary urbanization and opens with a reception on Mon., Mar. 23 from 4:30 to 6:00 to be followed by a lecture by landscape architect Adriaan Geuze, Co-founder of West 8, Rotterdam at 6:30 p.m. in S. R. Crown Hall – College of Architecture at Illinois Institute of Technology.
Over the past decade, the design disciplines have increasingly adapted their research and design methods in response to the complexity and speed of urbanization in the 21st century. “Dialogues on Urbanization: Emerging Landscapes” takes stock of recent disciplinary developments in research methods, design strategies, and representational modes in landscape architecture and urbanism through pairing eleven speculative and eleven built projects.
