This lecture gives an introduction to the concept of landscape urbanism. Beginning with an overview of the concepts origins and antecedents, including the professional formation and history of landscape architecture, the talk surveys canonical projects and recent work from North America. The talk features a detour into the implications of educating landscape architects to think and act as urbanists, including a reference to the reorientation of landscape pedagogy in the digital age, and concludes with examples of contemporary digital modeling in service of landscape urbanist practice.
Charles Waldheim is the John E. Irving Professor of Landscape Architecture and
Chair of the Department of Landscape Architecture at Harvard University’s Graduate
School of Design. His teaching and research examine the relationships between landscape and contemporary urbanism. Waldheim coined the term “landscape urbanism” to describe the recent emergence of landscape as a medium of urban order for the contemporary city. Waldheim has authored numerous articles and chapters on the topic, and edited The Landscape Urbanism Reader.
Waldheim’s writing on landscape and contemporary urbanism has appeared in
