How can we elevate design to save the planet? In this lushly illustrated talk, award-winning landscape architect Kona Gray, FASLA, PLA, discusses how his projects answer this question. He will share how his landscapes center ecological sensitivity and cultural inclusivity, from Etéreo, an ecolodge nestled in the pygmy mangroves of Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula, to River Park Center, an urban green space in Miami-Dade County. Draw inspiration for how to reconnect ourselves and our communities more deeply to the outdoors, and how that connection will develop environmental empathy and foster a shared sense of responsibility for our planet.

Principal of EDSA Kona A. Gray, FASLA, PLA, has 28 years of experience creating award-winning spaces that reinvigorate imaginations, solve meaningful global issues, and promote community in diverse neighborhoods in more than 30 countries. Gray is a Fellow of the American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA), a member of the Landscape Architecture Accreditation Board, and a leader of a wide variety of DEI initiatives in landscape architecture organizations and universities.

NYBG is offering Continuing Education credits (CEUS) for LA CES and APLD for successful completion of this lecture.
