world in denmark - change

Reflective urbanism - experimenting openness is the title of the lecture to be given by Gisle and Knut Eirik at the World in Denmark conference, May 29 at DAC, Copenhagen.

From the program:
Change has become mantra: climate change, environmental, financial and political change. Change in nature and society has before resulted in change in the aesthetic language; as a sign of something upcoming or as a mirroring of something that has arrived. Is this the case in today’s urban space? Do we see and do we need new definition, new significance new use of the urban landscape and consequently a new aesthetic language in the urban space? Though the significance belongs to the large scale the signs often start in the small – in garden art and landscape architecture. The World in Denmark conference asks this question to landscape architects and their answers will take form as reflections and projects.
