2.06.11 St. Petersburg Conference

Plincke director, Colin Burden delivered a paper to the international conference on New Perspectives in Landscape Architecture, St. Petersburg. The paper challenged the traditional roles of design professionals, arguing instead that in a world were communities are becoming more politicised the wider social, cultural, environmental, and economic influences need to be considered in the design and construction of capital projects. The coming decades will see increasing demand for resources and that all design professionals will need to adapt to these implications beyond just the “green agenda”.
