Lectures released on Vimeo every Monday

From the Rooftops is a virtual lecture series hosted by the Department of Landscape Architecture at the Weitzman School of Design. It intends to bring students, professionals, and scholars together over topics central to landscape’s present and futures. The series will feature talks from the Department’s faculty on a plethora of topics, research, and, curiosities.

With each lecture, we hope to provide accessible content that inspires meaningful conversation and learning on landscape architecture during a time where in-person exchanges are not able to be offered.

Lectures will be released weekly on Mondays, starting June 1, 2020.
