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.

Landscape Lectures begin at 7 pm in Calderwood Hall. Lectures include Museum admission and require a ticket; tickets can be reserved online, in person at the door, or by phone: 617 278 5156. Museum admission: adults $15, seniors $12, students $5, free for members (children under 7 not admitted).
