Please note: this event has regrettably been cancelled.
The Department of Landscape Alumni event 2015 is held at a place most familiar to all – the iconic Arts Tower – and where your Landscape careers started. We have invited Noel Farrer, President of the Landscape Institute, to share his view on how Landscape Architecture is shaping the world and how we improve lives. Together with James Hitchmough, Head of Department, he will go through the challenges we face today and how education and practice both have their unique role to play.
When: Friday 18th September 2015
Where: Guided Tour around Sheffield starting at the Railway station going towards the Arts Tower
Guided Tour Sheffield
Meeting at Sheffield railway station at 3pm, the event will start with a guided walk to the Arts Tower, taking in sites where Landscape Architecture has, or will, change the shape of Sheffield, including the inner city naturalistic landscape of Manor Fields Park and the Grey to Green Corridor, which runs from Castle Gate to West Bar.
We will arrive at the Arts Tower around 5:00 pm where dinner, drinks, music and networking will follow, while Noel and James set out what Landscape Architecture can do to address its challenges and how the University of Sheffield's Department of Landscape is playing its part.
