Research Fellow Seminar: Jane Hutton

Grubbing, Weeding, Mowing, Breeding: On the Changing Specifications, Technologies, and Designs for Landscape Maintenance
Seminar, in English, Study Room, 22 August 2019, 6:30pm

Jane Hutton examines the ways in which landscape maintenance, while largely invisible, is a practice of ecological significance: either suppressing or supporting ecological relationships in the designed landscape.

Jane Hutton is a landscape architect whose research looks at the relationships between common building materials and the landscapes that they come from. She recently completed the book, Reciprocal Landscapes: Cases in Material Movement (Routledge, 2019) that traces five seminal landscape materials that ended up in New York City over the past century. Other publications include Landscript 5: Material Culture, and Wood Urbanism: From the Molecular to the Territorial, a volume co-edited with Daniel Ibanez and Kiel Moe. Hutton is a co-founding editor of the journal Scapegoat: Architecture, Landscape, Political Economy and Assistant Professor at the University of Waterloo School of Architecture.
