The Harvard Graduate School of Design Office for Urbanization, led by John E. Irving Professor of Landscape Architecture Charles Waldheim, in collaboration with the David Rockefeller Center for Latin American Studies and institutions and universities in the region will host the fifth iteration of the Landscape as Urbanism in the Americas Conference Series in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Previous conferences were held in Chile, Brazil and Colombia in 2016 and Mexico in 2017.

--Over the past two decades landscape has been claimed as model and medium for the contemporary city. During this time a range of alternative architectural and urban practices have emerged across Latin America. Many of these practices explore the ecological and territorial implications for the urban project. The emergence of these practices has coincided with societal and political transformations in many countries across the region. Landscape as Urbanism in the Americas convenes a series of discussions on the potentials for landscape as a medium of urban intervention in the specific social, cultural, economic, and ecological contexts of Latin American cities.--

The conference will be held on May 28th, 2018 at the Museo de Arte Latinoamericano de Buenos Aires (MALBA) and will convene emerging practitioners and scholars, especially operating in Argentina, Uruguay and Paraguay. Free and open to the public, the conference will be conducted in English, with simultaneous interpretation available in Spanish.
