Ottawa: Bringing Nature to Urban Spaces Symposium
September 16 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
This panel of speakers will examine diverse, creative approaches where experimentation and cross-pollination between art, landscape architecture, design and other disciplines provide innovative, often surprising, answers to current needs for public spaces that embrace nature and complement green and urban forestry initiatives. Speakers will explore hybrid options that use garden and horticultural methods as well as sculptural and architectural forms to mark and animate places; provide shade and benefits of trees; and integrate sound, light, solar collection.
