The Department of Landscape Architecture welcomes Bryony Roberts, Bryony Roberts Studio/Columbia University, in our Forms of Public Realm Practice lecture series.

Bryony Roberts leads the design and research practice Bryony Roberts Studio based in New York. Integrating methods from architecture, art, urban design, and historic preservation, the practice creates immersive environments that activate public spaces and historical sites around the world. The studio approaches design as a social practice, working with local community groups and creators to respond to the cultural histories and urban conditions of a place. The practice has been awarded the Architectural League Prize and New Practices New York from AIA New York as well as support from the National Endowment for the Arts, the Graham Foundation, the MacDowell Colony, and the American Academy in Rome. Roberts guest-edited the recent volume Log 48: Expanding Modes of Practice, edited the book Tabula Plena: Forms of Urban Preservation published by Lars Müller Publishers, and co-guest-edited Log 31: New Ancients. Roberts teaches architecture at the Columbia University Graduate School of Architecture, Planning, and Preservation.
