This year's Michael Hough/Ontario Association of Landscape Architects Visiting Critic, Pierre Bélanger, will be joined by Assistant Professor of Environmental Studies Jessica F. Green for the lecture “What is the Geography of Energy?” Presented by the John H. Daniels Faculty of Architecture, Landscape, and Design at the University of Toronto.

“What is the Geography of Energy?” will explore how landscapes of energy govern the planet, including how we conceptualize relationships between human intervention and the natural environment, the politics of these equations, and art/design practices that aestheticize (or naturalize/facilitate) destruction.
