Talk: Reclaiming Urban Spaces
National Building Museum
Learn how cities across the country are reclaiming marginal space for new uses. Parks, housing, offices and retail are rising on urban spaces that were once ignored or considered unbuildable. Projects such as Hudson Yards in New York City, Capitol Crossing in Washington, D.C. and The Underline in Miami, FL are combining innovative thinking about urban space and cutting edge building technology to create vibrant urban places to live, work and play in places previously ignored or considered unbuildable.

LAM Lecture: Landscape as Chromatic Relationships
supported by Victor Stanley, Inc.
ASLA Center for Landscape Architecture
1.0 LA CES
Gareth Doherty’s talk will discuss color and landscape as relating to two recent projects. First, drawing from ethnographic fieldwork, Doherty will explores the landscapes of the city-state of Bahrain, where green represents a plethora of implicit human values and exists in dialectical tension with other culturally and environmentally significant colors and hues. Second, the talk will touch upon the work of Roberto Burle Marx, the acclaimed Brazilian landscape architect, who saw color as among the most important elements a landscape architect can work with.
