Tim Duggan, founder of Phronesis in Kansas City and New Orleans, will present the 2017 P.H. Elwood Lecture in Landscape Architecture. Sponsored by the Department of Landscape Architecture, Duggan’s presentation, “Urban Acupuncture,” is free and open to the public.
“Urban acupuncture” is a new term for small-scale design interventions intended to activate spaces and communities. It speaks to the creation of partnerships and collaborations that work to solve systemic problems, such as social and environmental injustice, through urban landscape and infrastructure improvements.
