1·Lectures on planting: One Material

Thursday 31 March 2016, 20:00 - 21:30 hrs.
Academy of Architecture
Waterlooplein 211-213
1011 PG Amsterdam

The character of a public space is strongly influenced by the choice of planting. Furthermore, it has been found that the right choice of planting greatly increases the habitat of birds and bees in the city. Questions such as ‘how does a gardener make a planting plan?’ will be answered during this 1·Lectures and historical and contemporary planting in the city for aesthetics and biodiversity will be discussed. Guest speaker is grower Brian Kabbes. 

The 1·Lectures series is organized by the Amsterdam Centre for Architecture and the Amsterdam Academy of Architecture. Renowned designers, from home and abroad, will discuss current issues in the field of architecture, urbanism and landscape design. The 1·Lectures take place at the Amsterdam Academy of Architecture, Waterlooplein 213 in Amsterdam. They are held on a biweekly basis on Thursday evenings, starting at 20:00.

Advance tickets costing €5 are available online. In addition, tickets can be purchased at the door from 19:30 on the evening of the lecture itself (if available). Academy students are entitled to free admission on presentation of their student ID card. All lectures are held in English.
