Critical topics of our age from climate change, to social inequality and political ecology, require critical landscape architectural approaches. Through various forms of fieldwork, the Critical Landscapes Lab engages directly with diverse audiences, sites and issues, and in the process expands theories and practices of landscape architecture.
The Critical Landscapes Lab’s current and recent projects include the Atlas for a City-Region: Imagining the Post-Brexit Landscapes of the Irish Northwest; Sacred Groves and Secret Parks: Orisha Landscapes in Brazil and West Africa; and After Dark: Nocturnal Landscapes and Public Spaces in the Arabian Peninsula.
The Critical Landscapes Lab is affiliated with the Aga Khan Program for Islamic Architecture
at Harvard University Graduate School of Design.
