The Emergent City:
Transforming the Urban Experience
with Dynamic Landscapes
With cities across the country and abroad seeking to revitalize themselves through interventions that will make them greener, more vibrant and more livable than ever before, innovative landscape initiatives are playing a seminal role in many successful transformations. This colorful presentation will explore a range of strategies that overlay environmental interests on cultural experiences and examines the impacts that the creative uses of plants can have on urban life--with a particular focus on the design and development of New York City's High Line.
Patrick Cullina is an award-winning horticulturist, landscape designer, lecturer, consultant and photographer with nearly twenty years of experience in the field. He currently runs a design and consulting business based in New York that is dedicated to the innovative and sensitive integration of plants and materials into a diverse range of compelling designs that draw inspiration from a versatile portfolio of projects and ecologies alike--maintaining a particular focus on creating beautiful and resonant public and private urban spaces.
