Landscape as Urbanism in the Americas - Mexico City


Wednesday, June 28, 2017, 9:00am to 3:00pm


Museo Tamayo, Mexico City, Mexico


The Harvard Graduate School of Design's Office for Urbanization, led by Professor Charles Waldheim, in collaboration with the David Rockefeller Center for Latin American Studies, ​and universities and institutions in the region, will convene a series of emergent voices around the use of landscape as urban form. The symposium is scheduled for Wednesday, June 28, 2017 at Museo Tamayo in Mexico City. The event is free and open to the public. For full event information, please visit the event's website.

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.
