5:30 – 8:00pm
Put on by Portland Design Events
This will be a two-part presentation: The first part will be about the work of Martha Schwartz Partners that spans from the very early installation works to the most recent work being done by the practice. The work will show an evolution of scale and approach to design.
The second part of the presentation will be her sharing her concerns about climate change, the conflicts this knowledge has brought which has resulted in the re-evaluation of her own priorities as a professional. She is in a transition now as she is beginning to learn more about climate change and how we, as a practice, might fundamentally change our approach to design. As a teacher, her goals have shifted to teaching students how we, as landscape architects, can respond meaningfully to climate change.
