Jeff will be speaking at the Shanghai World Expo Exhibition & Convention Center during the Greenery & Landscaping Conference May 29-31, 2018.
The Potential of Places | Abstract
Our relationship with the natural world and built environments is changing. As our landscapes are transforming due to increased development and a changing climate it is more important than ever for public landscapes to foster a unique place-specific identity with a high quality of public life for residents. In response, the role of the Landscape Architect is increasing in complexity as the interweaving of environmental and cultural issues require solutions that are both visionary and sustainable.
Space2place, a landscape architecture studio based in Vancouver, takes an integrated approach to help organizations transform forgotten sites into ecologically sustainable and experientially rich places. As landscape architects and urban designers they bring together the practical and the imaginative to realize projects that enhance meaningful connections between people and their environments. In his lecture Jeff Cutler will share his process illustrated with relevant projects from Western Canada.
