LAND | TERRE DESIGN RESEARCH NETWORK IS A COLLECTIVE AIMED AT INCREASING AWARENESS AND RESEARCH IN LANDSCAPE ARCHITECTURE ACROSS CANADA.

 

ACADEMIC RESEARCHERS FROM SEVEN INSTITUTIONS ARE JOINING FORCES TO REDUCE THE COUNTRY'S GEOGRAPHIC SPAN BY TACKLING RESEARCH QUESTIONS THAT IMPACT US REGIONALLY, AND NATIONALLY.

THE GROUP

The group initially presented work, "Thinking critically about Canadian landscapes | A disciplinary conversation" at the Sommet Mondial du Design / World Design Summit / IFLA in Montreal October 2017.

The goal of the LACF grant proposal titled "Thinking critically about Canadian landscapes | A disciplinary conversation" was to open discussions on landscape architecture across the country. The specific aims were to create a forum to address common research questions, to reveal the potential for more informed and collaborative research projects in landscape architecture research and education in Canada, and to form the foundation of a national research group. In one year, we achieved this and more.
