Join Harvard GSD professor Charles Waldheim for a discussion based on Technical Lands: A Critical Primer, which he co-edited with Jeffrey S. Nesbit. The book, published this year by JOVIS, assembles authors from a diverse array of disciplines, geographical specializations and epistemological traditions to interrogate and theorize the meaning and increasing significance of technical lands—spaces united by their “exceptional” characteristics, such as remote locations, delimited boundaries, secured accessibility and hyper-vigilant management.

Charles Waldheim is John E. Irving Professor of Landscape Architecture and Director of the Office for Urbanization at the Harvard University Graduate School of Design. Waldheim’s research examines the relations between landscape, ecology and contemporary urbanism.

Copies of Technical Lands: A Critical Primer will be available for purchase at the event.

This event is part of the Daniels Faculty's Fall 2023 Public Program.
