This Upcoming Wednesday, 9/29 at 4:00 pm, Gale Fulton will speak about Landscape Intelligence.
This lecture explores the idea of landscape intelligence and what such a concept might imply for the future of landscape architectural education and practice. Unlike landscape urbanism, which was formulated as a replacement to the traditions of landscape architecture, architecture, and urban design – at least in their relationship to urbanism - landscape intelligence is offered as a way to renovate and contemporize traditional landscape architectural thinking in order to more fully engage the plasticity of the landscape medium for its cultural and ecological potentials.
Gale is Assistant Professor at the Landscape Architecture Department, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. His research is focused on three primary areas which include 'graphic' form in suburban residential landscapes; re-programming the American small park; and entrepreneurial opportunities and techniques in contemporary landscape design practice.
