Nature 3.X

Lecture by Cleveland Fellow Matthew Tucker
Monday April 9
100 Rapson Hall at 6:00pm

NATURE 3.x is an exploration of emerging patterns and processes. It considers the broad and evolving definition of "nature" and how emerging paradigms of what nature is effect both the policies and built form of urban areas. In particular, the lecture will discuss specific trends in the "nature" of contemporary, designed urban open spaces as well as derelict, abandoned, and contaminated sites.
