The 2023 Fall Seminar Series will feature Assistant Professor Emily Knox and Associate Professor David Hill of the School of Architecture, Planning and Landscape Architecture in the College of Architecture, Design and Construction at Auburn University, who will give a talk about the Alabama Meadows Project on Tuesday, Aug. 29, at 3:30 p.m. in Room 2217 of the College of Forestry, Wildlife and Environment Building located at 602 Duncan Drive, Auburn, AL.
The professors are hosted by Dr. John Kush, an instructor and research professional in the College of Forestry, Wildlife and Environment. Alabama Meadows is a field-based research project that re-builds knowledge about Southeastern meadows and grasslands. Over the last several years, grounded theory has guided the installation and maintenance of five meadow test plots at the Mary Olive Thomas Demonstration Forest in Auburn, Alabama. This talk will discuss the evolution of the project over the last several years and the role that landscape architects might play in landscape management.
David Hill is an Associate Professor and Program Chair of the Graduate Program of Landscape Architecture at Auburn University, as well as the Founding Principal of Hillworks, a design practice grounded in the ecological and cultural complexities of the Southeast. Emily Knox is an Assistant Professor of Landscape Architecture at Auburn University. She is interested in the role that designers might play in large, complex landscapes. Most recently, this has included work in the ranching landscapes of the American West and meadow and grassland landscapes of the American Southeast.
Faculty, students, and the public are invited to attend this program. Advanced registration is not required. Refreshments will be available after the seminar, and CFEs are available upon request. Parking is available on the third and fourth floors in the South Quad Parking Deck across from the CFWE Building on Duncan Drive.
