Charles Waldheim, Ford’s Fields seminar 8th-9th May

Charles Waldheim is Associate Dean and Director of the Landscape Architecture Program on the Faculty of Architecture, Landscape, and Design at the University of Toronto where his research focuses on contemporary urbanism in relation to landscape. Waldheim coined the term “landscape urbanism” to describe emerging design practices in the context of North American urbanism and has written extensively on the positions, practices, and precedents of the topic. On this topic he has recently edited The Landscape Urbanism Reader (Princeton Architectural Press, 2006).

Charles will lead “Ford’s Fields” a short seminar during the third term in relation to the renewed relevance of the field of landscape within the current understanding of contemporary city.
