Landscape conference to promote a more cohesive approach to urban design

Pushing the boundaries of creating high-quality urban space will be explored as part of a conference discussing the latest approaches to landscape design.

Landscape architects, urban designers and architects will be encouraged to collaborate to ensure all the spaces in a city work together and define its character at the Landscape and the Contemporary City conference on 18 March.

A panel of international experts will deliver presentations and case studies at the event, as well as offering ideas on how architects can create stimulating city spaces.

Grant Associates director Andrew Grant will present a session looking at the benefits of green spaces in mitigating the effects of climate change.

He will explore how to use environmental concepts as an inspiration for creative landscape design.

EDAW president Jason Prior will look at Beijing and London as Olympic landscapes, offering an insight into the challenges of delivering the London project and how the landscapes of both cities will change as a result. Also presenting at the Architectural Review-organised conference will be Space Syntax managing director Tim Stonor, Latz + Partner's Peter Latz, and Gross Max founding partner Eelco Hooftman.

The conference is being held at the Royal College of Physicians in London.
