From the desert to the simply deserted, Landings explores the expansive territories and intrinsic potential of the environment in its broadest sense. Terms such as sustainability, site, contextualism, remediation, reclamation, regionalism, land use–at once loaded and generic–demonstrate a need to frame our engagement with the world around us. This year’s speakers consider the natural, cultural, and commercial histories and futures of various spaces, places, and sites. Their distinctive projects allow us to reconsider such terms and invite a wider discussion of the critical possibilities. Seating is limited, so purchase your tickets early. The Walker and the American Institute of Architects Minnesota (AIA Minnesota) present the Summer Design Series 2004 at the University of Minnesota College of Architecture and Landscape Architecture.
