The DLA Research Seminar Series provides a platform to discuss scholarly research on the built environment that is interdisciplinary in nature. The series aims to identify common research threads from landscape architecture, architecture, planning, urban design and conservation, and by doing so instigates critical reflections on the different approaches to the study of landscapes and cities.
