What: EVDS Design Matters workshop; Exploring Urbanization
When: Thursday, Dec 1, 2011; 7-8:30pm
Where: Event center at the downtown campus!
Who: Richard T.T Forman
Richard T.T. Forman, considered by many to be the ‘father’ of landscape ecology and road ecology, will be speaking at the downtown campus as part of The Faculty of Environmental (EVDS) Design Matters lecture series.
Forman, a professor of Landscape Ecology at Harvard University’s graduate school of design, has helped to catalyze the emergence of urban-region ecology and planning. His primary scholarly interest links science with spatial pattern to interweave nature and people on the land.
His presentation will explore the outward implications of urbanizations in the ring-around-the-city and propose ideas for dramatically reconnecting land and society.
