Pedro Camarena, LWCircus Co-Founder and Mexican Coordinator invited speaker as emergent voices around the use of landscape as urban form @ Landscape as Urbanism in the Americas – Mexico City Wednesday June 28, 2017, 09:00am – 03:00pm – Museo Tamayo – Mexico City – Paseo de la Reforma 51, Bosque de Chapultepec, Ciudad de México.

Over the past two decades landscape has been claimed as model and medium for the contemporary city. During this time a range of alternative architectural and urban practices have emerged across Latin America. Many of these practices explore the ecological and territorial implications for the urban project. The emergence of these practices has coincided with societal and political transformations in many countries across the region. Landscape as Urbanism in the Americas convenes a series of discussions on the potentials for landscape as a medium of urban intervention in the specific social, cultural, economic, and ecological contexts of Latin American cities.
