Join the Academy of Urbanism to explore the legacy of Ian McHarg and Design with Nature in his centenary year

2020 marks the centenary of Ian McHarg; landscape architect, ecologist and urbanist, and native of Glasgow Clydebank. Through two online sessions, we will celebrate McHarg’s authorship of Design with Nature in 1969, as well as his position as founding Chair of the Department of Landscape Architecture at the University of Pennsylvania (UPenn). The event will also look at McHarg’s legacy, and how lessons from planning using natural systems are applied now, and what the future holds.

The sessions take place late afternoon on the 11th and 12th November, tying in to the time of year when COP26 would have taken place in Glasgow, and include speakers from the Academy of Urbanism, the Landscape Institute and the University of Pennsylvania.
