Daniel Urban Kiley Lecture: Elizabeth K. Meyer, Unsettling Sustainability—Landscape Laboratories as Experimental and Experiential Grounds

February 29 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm EST

Free

Meyer, the inaugural faculty director of the University of Virginia’s transdisciplinary Morven Sustainability Lab, will present an overview of how landscape architectural design thinking is at the core of the strategic planning process for this 3000-acre rural landscape on the peri-urban edge of Charlottesville. She will describe how the socio-ecological history of this former plantation and indigenous tribal lands is shaping future research questions, student engagement programs and community collaborations. Additionally, Meyer will share a vision for the Morven Sustainability Lab that positions it within the context of a new generation of landscape labs where landscape architects—working with architects, planners, anthropologists, scientists, and environmental humanities scholars—are co-creating living learning landscapes capable of inspiring a new generation of caring climate activists.

The lecture will be held at the GSD Gund Hall Piper Auditorium on February 29 from 6:30 to 8:00 pm EST.
