AIA CES: 1.5 LU

When: 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 27

Where: At The Center

In the field of urban design, architecture has recently come to terms with landscape’s emergence from mere background of objects to its engagement with complex environmental dynamics. Landscape architecture has become a primary point of reference from which to think about planning, ecology, and infrastructure, through a performative attention to time-based processes of transformation at multiple scales.

35 years ago, the exhibition Roma Interrotta inaugurated the post-modernist focus on the permanent values of historical urban center. Princeton’s and Columbia’s Schools of Architecture have recently participated in an initiative called “Roma 20-25,” in which 25 international universities have both critically re-assessed the role of architecture, urban, and landscape design at a metropolitan scale, and outlined new visions for a pedagogical approach to its modes of representation and relationship to the larger urban environment.
