Leading with Landscape IV: Transforming NC’s Research Triangle Conference + Tour

Leading With Landscape IV

DATES: April 12 – 15th (Schedule)

North Carolina’s Research Triangle—including Raleigh, Durham, and Chapel Hill—is a rich tapestry of natural and cultural systems interwoven with campus landscapes (academic, corporate, and cultural), regional and urban parks, and residential communities that serve diverse populations. Although the idea of the ‘Research Triangle’ first began to form in the post-War era, the region’s history dates back centuries and includes periods of great achievement despite generations of racial strife. Now, in the first quarter of the 21st century, Raleigh, the state capital, and the neighboring cities of Durham and Chapel Hill are embracing their roles as incubators for fresh ideas in planning, design, and stewardship, with landscape architects often taking the lead.


DATE: Thursday, April 12th: Opening Reception  |  TIME: 6 to 8:30 p.m.  | LOCATION: NC Museum of Art

Please join TCLF on Thursday evening before the Leading with Landscape conference for a reception at the North Carolina Museum of Art in Raleigh to mingle with conference speakers and attendees. The museum collection spans more than 5,000 years of artistic work, features over forty galleries, in addition to more than a dozen major works in the nation’s largest museum park of fields, woodlands and creeks.

To explore the choices that will shape the region’s future and to initiate and inspire broad community-based participation, The Cultural Landscape Foundation (TCLF) has curated a one-day summit to be held on Friday, April 13, 2018, in the auditorium at the James B. Hunt, Jr., Library at North Carolina State University, in Raleigh. With support from Premier Sponsors, Sasaki and the Dix Park Conservancy; and Event Partners, the City of Raleigh, the North Carolina Museum of Art, and North Carolina State University’s College of Design, the summit will draw attention to local and regional work that represents the best planning and design initiatives that strike a balance with natural, historic, cultural, and ecological systems.

Introductory presentations will explore the regionally unique coupling of human and natural systems. A morning panel of international practitioners will then reveal how the area’s campus landscapes are serving as “incubators” for innovative planning and design solutions. The afternoon panel will showcase new projects that are re-evaluating the region’s monuments and memorials, as well as two revered public landscapes—Moore Square and Dix Park.  A moderated closing panel, featuring Raleigh’s former chief planner, a nationally prominent design critic, and a leading advocate for the region’s cultural landscapes, will discuss and assess the day’s proceedings.
