In 1987, Martha Schwartz gave a lecture at the John. H. Daniels Faculty of Architecture, Landscape, and Design at the University of Toronto (then named the Faculty of Architecture, Landscape, and Design). This clip is from the Q&A session that followed her lecture.
Martha Schwartz is a landscape architect and artist with major interests in cities, communities and the urban landscape. Her work spans from site-specific art installations to working with cities at strategic planning levels. Her focus is on environmental sustainability and the creation of awareness about how the urban landscapes underwrites urban sustainability through functioning as the connective platform for a city’s environmental, social and economic health. Schwartz is an advocate for how cities can help to reduce climate change and support a more sustainable approach to diminishing resources. Schwartz continues her devotion to the built environment through pushing new boundaries and expressions as a designer.
