Welcome to the London Architecture Diary, your essential guide to architecture exhibitions and events taking place across the city, brought to you by New London Architecture.
Similar findings in the United States have prompted researchers there to question whether predominantly white landscape professions are creating ethno-racially inscribed landscapes, and so influencing who feels welcome (Byrne & Wolch, 2009).
We ask: Who and what is represented in the landscape? Does power to shape the landscape promote preferred narratives and practices, limiting cultural access? Why are the professions that produce our urban and rural landscapes not more ethnically diverse?
This event will bring together leading international practitioners and researchers from the arts, from landscape architecture, and other academic disciplines, to explore issues of diversity, ethnicity and representation, to ask, is this just landscape?
