SCAPE’s founder Kate is the featured speaker for the Sylvester Baxter Lecture series at the Harvard Graduate School of Design next Tuesday, February 21. Her lecture, “Toward an Urban Ecology”, frames SCAPE’s design practice as a form of activism, demonstrating how to move beyond familiar and increasingly outmoded ways of thinking about environmental, urban, and social issues as separate domains; and advocating for the synthesis of practice to create a truly urban ecology. A range of participatory and science-based strategies will be discussed and shown in the lecture through the lens of the office’s work, featuring projects, collaborators, and design methods that advance urban ecological design.
