Description

The debate roars on in cities across the country: Is the work of landscape architects in urban communities “revitalization” or “gentrification”? This panel discussion examines the relationship of landscape architecture and gentrification and considers how we can improve communities without displacing the very people we are working to help.

Learning Objectives:


  • Understand the causes of gentrification.
  • Learn about the current arguments for and against gentrification.
  • Understand how the work of landscape architecture impacts gentrification.
  • Learn how landscape architects can work to avoid involuntary displacement of the communities for whom we design.
