U.Va. Landscape Professor To Give Talk On "Landscapes As Dynamic Urban Infrastructures"

February 4, 2000 -- Urban landscapes and the changing relationship between nature and the city will be the topic of a lecture by Kathy Poole, assistant professor of landscape architecture at the University of Virginia. The talk will be at 12:30 p.m. Friday, Feb. 11, in Campbell Hall, Room 153.

Poole will focus on the Boston park, Back Bay Fens, to provide a look at landscape architecture’s ability to invigorate urban environments today.

Using computer technology, she will bring the park alive through drawings, photographs, animation, and digital movies, tracing its evolution from a 17th century marshland through Frederick Law Olmstead’s design for the park to its place in the urban landscape today.

Poole is a 1999-2000 fellow at U.Va.’s Institute for Advanced Technology in the Humanities, where her research project, "Boston's Back Bay Fens: Transforming A Classic Case Study Into a Three-Dimensional Animation of Ecological Dynamics," will soon be available online.
