At a Crossroads: Socially Just Landscapes

Note the "Location" below which indicates if a particular session meets online or in person. Confirmation emails will contain specific logistics.
From her office in New York's Brooklyn Naval Yard, Elizabeth Kennedy leads EKLA PLLC, a collaborative, interdisciplinary social justice practice noted for excellence in innovative landscape preservation, development, and management. For Kennedy, design inspiration can come from anywhere-even the quality of light and shade. Kennedy's talk will illustrate how her projects-including the Weeksville Heritage Center in Brooklyn, the African Burial Ground National Monument in Lower Manhattan, the Inwood Sacred Site, the Peninsula Live-Work Campus in the Bronx, and Buffalo's Michigan Street African American Heritage Corridor-exemplify landscape architecture's potential to afford a broader understanding of place and identity.

The daughter of an architect, Elizabeth Kennedy, FASLA, knew at 14 that she wanted to be a landscape architect. She studied landscape architecture at Cornell University and founded her own firm in 1994, with the goal of collaborating with mission-driven non-profit organizations to serve communities. Much honored for her distinguished work in sustainability, Kennedy is an ASLA Fellow and the recipient of 2022's prestigious Annual Landscape Architecture Foundation Medal.

We offer Continuing Education credits (CEUS) for LA CES and APLD for successful completion of this lecture.
