Kate Orff is founder and principal of SCAPE, a landscape architecture and urban design studio based in New York, and author of Toward an Urban Ecology. SCAPE reconceives urban landscape design as a form of activism, demonstrating how to move beyond familiar and increasingly outmoded ways of thinking about environmental, urban, and social issues as separate domains; and advocating for the synthesis of practice to create a truly urban ecology. A range of participatory and science-based strategies will be presented in the lecture through the lens of the office’s work, featuring projects, collaborators, and design methods that advance urban ecological design.
