- Meeting Agenda
- Interdisciplinary Design and Research Pedagogy in Landscape Architecture
The task of balancing academic and practical aspects of design continues to pose significant challenges. Despite landscapes' inherent multifunctionality, many academics and practitioners continue to struggle with integrating multidisciplinary, transdisciplinary, and interdisciplinary approaches (e.g., research-based design) into landscape architecture education, research, and practice. In order to improve collaboration among educational institutions and professional organizations, it is imperative to identify and discuss potential barriers as well as opportunities/innovations in the classroom. We appreciate your assistance in providing examples or sharing your thoughts about promoting synergy between academic programs and professional organizations.
- Local Approaches for Global Challenges – Small Action, Big Change
Adaptation to pandemic crises and climate change pose complicated challenges. Although these issues are global in nature, local responses are crucial. Obviously, conditions differ from region to region. With a better understanding of climate, ecological, and socio-cultural factors, it is imperative to adopt locally adaptive landscape approaches. To accomplish this, cultivating local experts is an imperative first step. Our goal is to develop a variety of educational approaches and collaborative productions that provide landscape alternatives that address recognized problems in local contexts. To this end, instructors from all over the world are invited to share their experiences.
Please register your name and affiliation in the spreadsheet below in advance. Please feel free to share your thoughts and ideas in relation to the two agendas mentioned above or other topics of interest to you. Details may be added to or modified as a result of your suggestions. Those who wish to share their experiences in the classroom should upload their material (5 minutes max. in length) to Google Drive at least one week before the IFLA World Congress begins.
The Educators' Roundtable is a program as part of the Main Congress, and there is no additional registration fee. However, this session is entirely voluntary. There will be no honorarium for presentation or waiver of the IFLA registration fee).
GLOBAL URBAN THINKERS
ROUNDTABLE DISCUSSION AND NETWORKING FOR MILLENNIAL RESEARCHERS
- Event Summary
Our world is ever-changing. Think of COVID-19, which transformed our cities in ways that were unfathomable prior to 2020. One thing is for certain – in order for us to discover and challenge the many urban issues that may rise, collaborations across the classrooms, schools, and borders are necessary.
We believe that IFLA Gwangju 2022 can be a networking opportunity for global MZ urban/landscape researchers to come together and discuss what will be needed for the future urban environment, where we will grow, age, and eventually retire. What will be considered indispensable? How will our cities change? What will not change?
Date: Thu, September 1, 2022

- About organizers
- ULC Press comprises of urban/landscape researchers based in Seoul National University. Established by doctoral students in the Integrated Design and Aesthetics Lab, our goal is to organize the issues and ideas regarding urban landscape and to publish the videos and the textual outcomes, both theoretical and case-driven, via online and offline platforms. Our magazine, ULC(Urban Landscape Catalog) aims to create a semi-academic catalog that explores landscape functionality, characteristics and designs for the interested urban landscape consumers through textual and visual means. Our core target market comprises of those working in the contemporary urban fields of region, environment and space, as well as those who make this place their home. (ulcpress.com)
