Gary Hilderbrand with Alberto Iacovoni – Imagining the Vegetal City: The Surface Is Alive

Gary Hilderbrand, the recipient of the 2017 American Society of Landscape Architects Design Medal and Professor in Practice at Harvard Graduate School of Design, describes landscape architecture’s evolving consequential role in shaping contemporary cities. Urban streets, squares, and parks support the city’s ecological performance and define its spatial experience. Yet much of the city’s living infrastructure remains underestimated or invisible.
