WATER / CITY / TERRITORY: International Design Workshop

On Friday 1 March landscape architecture staff and students presented a workshop ‘WATER / CITY / TERRITORY’ as part of their design and research collaboration ‘Liverpool New York’ at the Van Alen Institute,  NYC.

Generously hosted by the Van Alen Institute, in New York City, the workshop began with a presentation by David Grahame Shane (Columbia University). Throughout the day there were presentations and discussions between faculty and students from both Kingston University and New York Institute of Technology with a focus on landscape, architecture and urbanism proposals for Red Hook in Brooklyn, New York.

Responses were offered by Mike Webb (Cooper Union), Giovanni Santamaria (NYIT), Pat Brown (Kingston University) and Ed Wall (Kingston University).


The Liverpool New York project is a design and research collaboration considering the relations between distant cities. The project has been initiated by the MA Landscape & Urbanism and PG Diploma Landscape Architecture programmes in the Faculty of Art, Design and Architecture at Kingston University.
