Lecture: Julian Smith on cultural landscapes – Apr 4


Cultural Values and the Contemporary Urban Landscape


April 4 / 9 pm

SFU Harbour Centre, 515 W Hastings Street, Vancouver

Admission is free, reservations are required. Reserve


Julian Smith will share current international thinking on cultural landscape theory and practice. It is a relatively new planning concept, emerging at the intersection of nature and culture, continuity and diversity, the old and the new. It is a response to changing attitudes in both the conservation field and the design and development fields.  In a period when people are searching for more integrated approaches to community development, cultural landscape theory and practice provides a broad ecological approach to sustainable practice.

Julian has consulted with UNESCO, the World Bank, federal and provincial governments, and the private sector to help develop cultural landscape theory and practice as part of a more dynamic approach to cultural resources and practices in a wide variety of settings.

Sponsored by ICOMOS Canada, Parks Canada, City of Vancouver, and Heritage BC.
