Responsive Landscapes presented by Justine Holzmann

Monday, March 21 - 4 pm - AB100 - Hosted by the Department of Landscape Architecture


Justine Holzman is an adjunct assistant professor in the Graduate Landscape Architecture Program and a research associate for the Responsive Environments and Artifacts Lab at Harvard. Holzman joins the faculty at UTK after teaching in The Robert Reich School of Landscape Architecture at Louisiana State University as a visiting assistant professor where she also worked as a research fellow with the LSU Coastal Sustainability Studio, a transdisciplinary think-tank working on coastal issues in Louisiana. 

Holzman's research recognizes the inherent responsive capabilities of landscape materiality and speculates on the development of dynamic and adaptive designs dependent on responsive technologies for nuanced monitoring and material reconfiguration. She recently co-authored a book with Bradley Cantrell, Responsive Landscapes: Strategies for Responsive Technologies in Landscape Architecture, framing a comprehensive view of interactive and responsive projects and their relationship to environmental space. 

Learning Outcomes: 

- Overview of emerging responsive technologies (technologies associated with sensing, monitoring, processing, and actuation) and their role in architectural and landscape architectural design.
- Overview of recent case studies which utilize responsive technologies to engage environmental phenomena.
- A theoretical explanation for the future and potential of responsive technologies to shape landscape architectural design.

One continuing education credit from AIA and LA/CES has been approved for this lecture.
