Ekdahl Lecture Series with David Rubin, PLA FASLA
Monday, February 18 | 4:30pm rubin screen

David Rubin, founding principal of DAVID RUBIN Land Collective, practices landscape architecture with a simple mission and big ambitions: to positively inform the world and improve the human condition through landscape. In this talk, David will explore how socially-purposeful landscapes can create positive change through cross-disciplinary collaborations and the synthesis of art, technology and the social sciences. This kind of “empathy-driven” design process derives from the understanding that landscape requires a spectrum of thoughtful ideas and voices in order to be successfully rendered. This collective consciousness lifts landscape to its highest ideals, effecting the human condition in positive, equitable ways.
