Engineered Ecologies: Scaling Landscape Practice in Asia
Dorothy Tang is an adjunct assistant professor of landscape architecture at the University of Hong Kong — where she teaches design studios and seminars exploring the role of landscape strategies at the intersection of everyday social operations and large-scale infrastructural systems — and a doctoral student in urban studies and planning at MIT. She investigates the impact of infrastructural developments on urban form and design, resource extraction and post-industrial landscapes, and disturbed landscapes after floods, earthquakes or other disasters.
Tang holds a Bachelor of Landscape Architecture with honors and distinction from Iowa State University and a Master of Landscape Architecture from the Harvard Graduate School of Design.
Tang’s lecture is part of the Master of Urban Design / Master of Design in Sustainable Environments Lecture Series.
