APDesign Ekdahl Lecture Series presents landscape architect David Rubin

Submitted by Thom Jackson

David Rubin

The College of Architecture, Planning & Design will present "The City is a Landscape: Kindness and the Space Between Buildings" by landscape architect David Rubin at 4:30 p.m. Monday, Feb. 18, in Regnier Forum at Regnier Hall as part of the Ekdahl Lecture Series. The event is free and open to the public.

Rubin, founding principal of David Rubin Land Collective, practices landscape architecture with a simple mission and big ambitions: to positively inform the world and improve the human condition through the landscape. In this talk, Rubin will explore how socially purposeful landscapes can create positive change through cross-disciplinary collaborations and the synthesis of art, technology and the social sciences. This kind of empathy-driven design process derives from the understanding that landscape requires a spectrum of thoughtful ideas and voices in order to be successfully rendered. This collective consciousness lifts landscape to its highest ideals, affecting the human condition in positive, equitable ways.

This presentation will be streamed live online
