FULLER CENTER FOR PRODUCTIVE LANDSCAPES 2018 LECTURE:

"Designing for Resilience, Equity and Democracy"

Gina Ford, FASLA
Principal and Co-Founder
Agency Landscape + Planning

With the onslaught of challenges (and opportunities) associated with climate change, significant demographic shifts and increased political activism, what is the role of the landscape architect in designing for such change? Gina will discuss a series of projects at a variety of scales where landscape is a medium and catalyst for addressing resilience, equity and democratic action.

Reception: 5:30 pm
Lecture: 6:00 pm
Thursday, April 26, 2018

Gina Ford is a landscape architect, co-founder and principal of Agency Landscape + Planning. Underpinning her two decades of practice are a commitment to the design and planning of public places and the perpetuation of the value of landscape architecture via leadership, exhibitions, teaching, writing and lecturing.

Gina’s work encompasses a wide range of scales and project types, from public parks and plazas to large-scale landscape planning and waterfront projects. She brings to each project a passion for the process of making vibrant landscape spaces—from the conceptual design to the details of implementation—with a particular focus on the life and use of urban, public environments. Gina led the design of the Chicago Riverwalk, Boston’s Lawn on D, Council Bluff’s Tom Hanafan Rivers Edge Park and Raleigh’s Moore Square and strategic planning efforts including the Cedar Rapids Flood Recovery Planning, the Rebuild by Design Competition and the Changing Course Competition while a principal with Sasaki.

Her work has received awards from the American Society of Landscape Architects, the American Planning Association and the American Institute of Architects, among others. She is on the board of directors for the Cultural Landscape Foundation and was the recipient of the Harvard Graduate School of Design’s Charles Eliot Travelling Fellowship and Wellesley College’s Shaw Fellowship.

 

The Fuller Center for Productive Landscapes, a program of the University of Oregon’s Department of Landscape Architecture, is a living laboratory for exploring the role of place in cultural sustainability. Learn more at http://blogs.uoregon.edu/fullercenter/. The Fuller Lecture is presented by the UO Department of Landscape Architecture through the generous support of Sue Langfitt Fuller, BS ’71 and Mortimer B. Fuller, III.

Fenton Hall, Room 110

Carolyn Dean presents "A Stone, a Story, a Sculpture: Collaconcho in Context"

Inka (Inca) stone carving as practiced on immobile boulders and outcroppings of rock, located outdoors and often in highly public locations, has proved challenging to art historical analysis. Its mostly austere, abstract forms resist interpretation. Focusing on one of the better documented examples of stone carving—an impressive outcrop named Collaconcho by the Inkas—Dean considers the significance of specific abstract forms, as well as the ways meaning was achieved through the juxtaposition of the outcrop with other worked stones in Collaconcho’s environs. It will be suggested that, for Collaconcho and others like it, stone carving addressed imperial concerns regarding potentially resistant populations, but did so indirectly, employing visual analogy and what Dean identifies as an “empathetic perspective.”

Carolyn Dean, Professor of History of Art and Visual Culture at the University of California, Santa Cruz, studies Andean, particularly Inka, visual and performance culture both before and after Spanish colonization. She is interested in how the arts embed various, often-conflicting ontologies and how indigenous perspectives have been ignored, dismissed, and misconstrued from colonial times through the present. She has published numerous articles and two books: Inka Bodies and the Body of Christ (Duke University Press, 1999) and A Culture of Stone (Duke University Press, 2010).

May 7 5:00 p.m.–6:30 p.m.
Lawrence Hall, Room 115

Ashley Dawson, author of Extinction: A Radical History, will speak about his newest book, Extreme Cities: The Peril and Promise of Urban Life in the Age of Climate Change (Verso, 2018).

How will climate change affect our lives? Where will its impacts be most deeply felt? Are we doing enough to protect ourselves from the coming chaos? In Extreme Cities, Dawson argues that cities are ground zero for climate change, contributing the lion’s share of carbon to the atmosphere, while also lying on the frontlines of rising sea levels. Today, the majority of the world’s megacities are located in coastal zones, yet few of them are adequately prepared for the floods that will increasingly menace their shores. Instead, most continue to develop luxury waterfront condos for the elite and industrial facilities for corporations. These not only intensify carbon emissions, but also place coastal residents at greater risk when water levels rise.

In Extreme Cities, Dawson offers an alarming portrait of the future of our cities, describing the efforts of Staten Island, New York, and Shishmareff, Alaska residents to relocate; Holland’s models for defending against the seas; and the development of New York City before and after Hurricane Sandy. Our best hope lies not with fortified sea walls, he argues. Rather, it lies with urban movements already fighting to remake our cities in a more just and equitable way.

Ashley Dawson is the Currie C. and Thomas A. Barron Visiting Professor in the Environment and the Humanities at the Princeton Environmental Institute.

Crystal Z Campbell: “Lost and Found: The Work of Art in the Age of Digital Regret”

Crystal Z Campbell considers the internet as the site in which everything and nothing can be erased––prompting questions about what stories these digitally curated remains can reveal for progeny. Campbell's creative practice uses found footage or historical references, often gleaned from both tangible archives and internet sources. These narratives of yesteryear are often processed through film, light, sound, performance, installation, ceramics, painting, writing, and community projects to interrogate present notions of justice and the politics of witnessing. Most recently, Campbell has investigated Henrietta Lacks' immortal cell line, the 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre, and gentrification. Campbell uses art as a tool for transmitting historical memory, time-travel, and proposing social change.

Crystal Z Campbell is an interdisciplinary artist and writer of African-American, Filipino & Chinese descents. Campbell's work has been exhibited and screened internationally: ICA Philadelphia (US), Artericambi (IT), Artissima (IT), Studio Museum of Harlem (US), Futura Contemporary (CZ), Project Row Houses in Texas (US), Children's Museum of San Diego (US), Art Rotterdam (NL), de Appel Arts Centre (NL) and SculptureCenter (US) amongst others. Selected honors and awards include Pollock-Krasner MacDowell Colony Fellow, Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, Rijksakademie van beeldende Kunsten, Whitney Museum's Independent Study Program Van Lier Fellowship, Sommerakademie Paul Klee, Amsterdam Fonds voor de Kunst, Mondriaan Fonds, Fondazione Ratti and a recent Smithsonian Fellowship. Campbell is a currently a second-year Tulsa Artist Fellow in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

Brian Jencek, Senior Principal @ HOK will present on the firm's planning and urban design work which spans architectural urbanism, environmental planning and landscape architecture.  HOK’s urban planners and designers create sustainable cities, towns, campuses, parks and transit-oriented communities by following a place-based, integrated systems approach to inform their master plans and urban design strategies. Using biomimicry to inform their solutions, they look to the “genius of the place” — the native species, ecologies and cultures — for design inspiration, performance measures and time-tested resiliency strategies.

Morehshin Allahyari: “On Digital Colonialism and Monstrosity”

Morehshin Allahyari is an artist, activist, educator, and occasional curator. She is the recipient of the leading global thinkers of 2016 award by Foreign Policy magazine. Allahyari was born and raised in Iran and moved to the United States in 2007. Her work deals with the political, social, and cultural contradictions we face every day. She thinks about technology as a philosophical toolset to reflect on objects and as a poetic means to document our personal and collective lives struggles in the 21st century. Allahyari is currently an artist in residence at Eyebeam’s one-year Research Residency (2016-2017) in NYC where she is developing a new body of work on Digital Colonialism and ‘re-Figuring’ as a Feminism and de-colonialism practice, using 3D scanners and 3D printers as her tools of investigation. Researching dark goddesses, monstrous, and djinn female figures of Middle-Eastern origin, Allahyari devises a narrative through practices of magic and poetic-speculative storytelling, re-appropriation of traditional mythologies, collaging, meshing, scanning, and archiving.

Allahyari has been part of numerous exhibitions, festivals, and workshops around the world including Venice Biennale di Archittectura, Museum of Contemporary Art in Montreal, Tate Modern, Queens Museum, Pori Museum, Powerhouse Museum,  Dallas Museum of Art, Jeu de Paume, Contemporary Arts Museum of Houston, Museum für Angewandte Kunst. She has been an artist in residence at BANFF Centre (2013), Carnegie Mellon University’s STUDIO for Creative Inquiry (2015), Autodesk Pier9 Workshop in San Francisco (2015), and the Vilém Flusser Residency Program for Artistic Research in association with Transmediale, Berlin (2016). Her work has been featured in the New YorkTimes, Huffington Post, Wired, National Public Radio, Parkett Art Magazine, Frieze, Rhizome, Hyperallergic, and Al Jazeera, among others.
