Claire Agre to deliver The University Of Oregon’s Fuller Lecture 2017
We are honored to announce that on Monday the 23rd of January, West 8 New York’s Principal Claire Agre will deliver the annual Fuller Lecture, with a focus on the topic ‘Landscapes of Waste.’
West 8 has led the vanguard of landscape design and urbanism for three decades. As landscape architects and urban designers, the West 8 team consistently finds optimistic and innovative ways to weave contemporary culture, narrative, and joy into forgotten urban places. Pragmatic re-utlization of resources and reimagined terrains becomes the foundation of 21st century iconic landscapes. Under the thematic topic, ‘Landscapes of Waste’, Agre will highlight some of West 8’s North American portfolio, from the renaissance of an abandoned urban island to the leveraging of waste to rebuild eroding coastlines.
The Fuller Center for Productive Landscapes describes itself as ‘a living laboratory for exploring the role of place in cultural sustainability’. It brings students to Overlook, a 400-acre estate originally designed by the Olmsted Brothers, to study the geology, ecology, history and use of the land, and to explore the productive potential of similar landscapes. The Center brings international experts from the leading edge of landscape sustainability to Eugene for lectures and seminars.
Reception is at 5 p.m., the lecture will start at 5:30 p.m.
