Presented as part of the spring 2021 Landscape Technology and Landscape elective courses taught by lecturer Alexandra Mei, the Landscape Processes series engages with seven practitioners to explore the details, materials, and technologies embedded in the practice of landscape architecture. Each discussion will focus on the guest speaker's body of work and how their processes to design are pushing the field of landscape architecture forward. During each event, attendees are invited to ask questions in a moderated discussion with the guest speaker. The lectures are enabled by the support of the Sam Fox School's Master of Landscape Architecture program. In partnership with ASLA St. Louis, the Sam Fox School is also providing free online LACES approved credits for this lecture series.
