Bridging the Nature-Culture Divide
How does responsible stewardship of a cultural landscape balance history and ecology? How can design interact with this nature/culture divide? The Jay Property in Rye, NY, a National Historic Landmark, is currently wrestling with these very issues making it an ideal location or “laboratory” for exploring these challenges. This one-day symposium featuring six nationally known experts in landscape architecture and environmental design aims to provoke discussion, push boundaries and inspire solutions. Speakers will include: Cheryl Barton, FASLA, FAAR; Charles A. Birnbaum, FASLA, FAAR; Rick Darke; Patricia O’Donnell, FASLA, AICP; Doug Reed, FASLA; and Thomas Woltz, ASLA. LACES Continuing Education Units (CEUs) will be available.
