Online Exhibition: Landscape Dialogues
What now, landscape architecture? This was the challenge put to the participants in the Department of Landscape Architecture’s recent symposium Landscape Dialogues. To kick off the proceedings, they exhibited their work at PennDesign from March 30 – 31 in an installation curated by the Department’s chair, Professor Richard Weller, along with Associate Professor Chris Marcinkoski and Senior Lecturer Keith VanDerSys.
Landscape Dialogues was the first in what is envisioned as a triennial series of symposia that bring together emerging voices actively engaged in advancing landscape as medium of contemporary culture. The event and forthcoming publication capture a broad spectrum of landscape-engaged practice, including, but not limited to: academic research, design research, design practice, policy, advocacy, technology and history.
Landscape Dialogues was made possible by the Gary & Barbara Siegler Special Projects Endowed Fund and the generosity of PennDesign Overseer Bonnie Sellers.
