Manufactured Sites: A Landscape Conference on Site Technologies for Contemporary Practice

“Manufactured Sites, A Landscape Conference on Site Technologies for Contemporary Practice” was held on April 3 and 4, 1998, at Gund Hall, Harvard University. This conference brought to the Graduate School of Design an international panel of scientists, landscape practitioners, and industry representatives who presented current research and case studies of progressive site technologies and their application to environmentally disturbed sites. Critical knowledge was introduced concerning innovative site technologies which address these conditions alongside discussion of the emerging landscape design possibilities arising from them.
