Xanthe’s talk looks at landscape design, architecture and gardening and its role
of influence in human ecology. It explores alternative ways we as designers can
use process and relationship to create interventions in perception of landscapewithout high impact design. It looks at how these relate to public and private spaces and how designing with a focus on human ecology can influence the way our societies develop.
