As the Landscape Urbanism programme continues to develop and refine its own transdisciplinary approach it invites, each year, an international and diverse range of speakers to offer new perspectives on the issues that concern its practice. These lectures are open to the public and are offered as means to engage the tutors and students of the LU programme in a productive dialogue with other practitioners, theorists and researchers within an open forum.
