    Geoengineering Took Kit for Designers

    A deep dive into non-traditional climate crisis remediation techniques will illustrate how large-scale solutions to climate change are needed for large-scale problems, and how these ideas can be used within landscape architecture.

    Learning Objectives 

    • Learn about the current climate change initiatives of our leading organizations
    • Examine the distinctions and how collaboration can enhance the collective impact
    • Understand how we can contribute to these initiatives and take individual action
    • Explore metrics and goal setting for the profession

    Martha Schwartz is a landscape architect, urbanist, and climate activist.  Her work and teaching focuses on the urban public realm landscape and its importance in making cities “climate ready”.  For more than 40 years, she and the firm have completed projects around the globe, from site-specific installations to public spaces, parks, and projects that focus on working with cities at strategic planning levels.

    Ms. Schwartz is a tenured Professor in Practice of Landscape Architecture at the Harvard University Graduate School of Design and is a participant of the GSD Climate Change Working Group.

    Schwartz foresees landscape architecture as the leading profession to face the challenge of Climate Change. At the Landscape Architecture Foundation’s 2016 “New Landscape Declaration” summit on Landscape Architecture and the Future, Martha’s “Declaration” became one of the key proponents of the industry’s current position that Climate Change is a central issue to the practice.

    She is  a founding member of the Working Group of Sustainable Cities at the Harvard University Center for the Environment, a founding member of the Landscape Architecture Foundation ‘s “Working Group on Climate Change”, and has recently founded MAYDAY.Earth, a non-profit organization focused on educating non-scientists and generalists about  geoengineering and global-scale solutions which can be integrated into practice, thus expanding the role of landscape architecture.

    Awarded the 2020 ASLA Design Medal, Ms. Schwartz is the recipient of numerous international recognitions, including the Honorary Royal Designer for Industry Award from the Royal Society for the Encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce for her outstanding contribution to UK design; the Cooper Hewitt National Design Award; the Women in Design Award for Excellence from the Boston Society of Architects; an Honorary Doctor of Science from the University of Ulster in Belfast, Ireland; a fellowship from the Urban Design Institute; visiting residencies at Radcliffe College and the American Academy in Rome; an Honorary Fellowship from the Royal Institute of British Architects; the Council of Fellows Award by the American Society of Landscape Architects and most recently a Doctor Honoris Causa from the Boston Architectural College.
