Green New Deal Landscapes: session 7

Alfredo Ramírez | Billy Fleming | Clara Olóriz Sanjuán | Douglas Spencer | Groundlab

Green New Deal Landscapes is a series hosted by Jose Alfredo Ramírez and Clara Olóriz Sanjuán, both co-directors of AA Groundlab. Each session discusses the relationship between policy making and our environment and explores how we can tackle climate change through landscape design.

Alfredo and Clara are joined by Billy Fleming and Douglas Spencer to discuss the role of the architecture profession in tackling climate change and social justice.


The conversation is a follow-up on the article Crises and Contestations: The Promise and Peril of Designing a Green New Deal published in AD: https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/ad.2769
