How Site Matters: Online lecture and conversation with Andrea Kahn

Time and place: February 17th 2021 at 4-5 PM (CET)
on zoom https://ucph-ku.zoom.us/j/64032761167

Understandings of ‘site’ are fundamental to landscape architecture, urban planning and design. Political crisis, climate change, COVID-19 and other current issues, affect our environments and increase the need to reflect, react and be attentive towards the concept of ‘site’. Educator, researcher and designer Andrea Kahn will present and discuss site thinking and how it matters, based on the recently published anthology Site Matters – Strategies for Uncertainty through Planning and Design (2020), as part of the Copenhagen Landscape Lecture Series.

Andrea Kahn will present background, main concepts and arguments behind ‘Site Matters’ and then, in conversation with Anne Margrethe Wagner og Svava Riesto,  dive into further questions on how site matters – for practitioners, researchers and highly multidisciplinary settings.
