Join us at the University of Greenwich for the ECLAS 2017 Conference (European Council of Landscape Architecture Schools). Landscape architects, artists, planners, architects, geographers, ecologists and social scientists are invited to London's World Heritage Site of Maritime Greenwich and the university's award winning Stockwell Street building, from 10-13 September 2017, to explore the theme of Creation / Reaction.

Landscapes are in every way embedded in creative processes, from design to their making, from planning to their management, engaging different and often disparate community expectations. Of course the endlessly creative natural processes, from geology, to plants, to ecology and so on provide the prime matter with which the landscape professions are concerned. Creation almost always provokes a responsive reaction, sometimes as an opposing natural force or process, and often a human response ranging from approval and celebration to extremes of disgust and opposition. Creation can result in transformation as well as revolution for better or for worse.

The processes of transformation and revolution in design are an inherent part of the creative process, and it is often the moments of conflict or tension that can be the most creative. These catalysts may be found in creation and reactions across all practices in landscape, and thus we encourage participants to explore these active and often difficult situations they find in the course of their work.
Theme: Creation / Reaction
'Each social formation, through each of its material activities, exerts its influence upon the civic whole; and each of its ideas and ideals wins also its place and power.' — Patrick Geddes​
