Alexandra Steed, Founder & Director of Alexandra Steed Urban, feels that people's broken relationship with nature has got us into the environmental predicament that we find ourselves in. But rather than wait for others to do something about it, Alexandra is calling upon all of us - especially those in the Landscape Architecture industry - to act now. During her chat with us, she talks about multiple actions - as described in her latest book, Portrait to Landscape: A Landscape Strategy to Reframe our Future, that we can take as professionals and citizens to start making a change.
With a mission to Live In Painted Cities, Lee Bofkin, CEO and co-founder of Global Street Art joins us to discuss the importance of street art and how our urban landscape can benefit from joyful murals representing and bringing together communities. We discuss the evolution in attitudes towards street art over the last 10 years, how street art brings spaces to life, democratises art and the museum of inspiration in the basement of GSA HQ.
