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.

Fluidity: Nasser Rabbat and Nader Tehrani (moderated by John Ochsendorf)

In this conversation, noted scholar of architecture, Nasser Rabbat, and cutting-edge designer, Nader Tehrani, will discuss “fluidity” as a paradigm for understanding the built environment of the Mediterranean world. Moderated by John Ochsendorf (2008 Fellow), the conversation will highlight concepts of fluidity in Rabbat’s groundbreaking scholarship on Syrian architectural heritage and in the innovations of Tehrani’s designs.
