In 2012, Mayor Park Won-Soon declared densely developed Seoul, South Korea the next "Agro City," and himself demonstrated rice planting in the central public plaza. Lindsay Burnette, a Fulbright Junior Researcher (2014-15) and AWB Steering Committee member, will explore the convergence of political trends and historical roots shaping today's "green landscapes" in Seoul. She'll examine three approaches to building urban agriculture: government initiatives, grassroots movements, and landscape architecture and design. Please join us at the AIA Center for Architecture, 403 NW 11th Ave (entry on NW Flanders). Refreshments will be served.
