Landscape Architecture Guest Lecture Will Focus on Urban Regeneration in China
January 16, 2019
The Landscape Architecture Program will present a special guest lecture event with Professor Emeritus Stephen R. Drown at 6-7:30 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 24, in TLC 028. Drown will talk about his urban regeneration efforts in China — specifically contemporary planning and design projects of international significance, and how they co-exist with historical gardens and landscapes. Drown has done consulting work in Hanzhou, China, one of the most prosperous cities in the country that’s home to West Lake, a UNESCO World Heritage site. He practiced extensively prior to coming to Idaho, winning national and international awards for his landscape architecture work, and has been involved in collaborations with various universities across China. Drown served as U of I’s department chair and program head for landscape architecture from 1994-2017. For more information, contact at firstname.lastname@example.org or 208-885-7448.
