“Airport Landscape: Urban Ecologies in the Aerial Age” Conference
Airport Landscape claims the airport as a site of and for landscape. Airports have never been more central to the life of cities, yet they remain peripheral in design discourse. Landscape architects have recently reasserted their historic claims on the airfield as a site of design through a range of practices. Airport Landscape presents these practices and the projects that support them. The exhibition assembles work from a number of the world’s leading landscape architects for the ecological enhancement and design of both operating and abandoned airfields. The conference gathers leading designers and scholars from a range of disciplines including keynotes by Peter Galison, Adriaan Geuze, and Christophe Girot.
