HKU Division of Landscape Architecture Seminar Series
Planetary Health and Human wellbeing: Interdisciplinary landscape research and design


Lecture Abstract

Nowadays, “landscape” has become the basic appearance of our land. Besides the aesthetic character, does it have the thinking capability? If so, to what extend? Designers are not only inspired by the economic and political power of the society; they could also demonstrate the landscape’s own thinking and interpretation. By this means, the landscape could be the container of thoughts and ideas, a platform for profound conversation for people and land.
