DLA Lecture: Public Space for Community Building
Wednesday, September 13, 2017
12:10 pm - 1:10 pm
Location: 409 Marshall Hall
Mark Johnson, FASLA, President,
CIVITAS Landscape Architecture
In his talk, Mark will focus on the firm’s interest in building civic spaces for the 21st century and an era of extreme skepticism regarding public space and its role in building democracy.
“We don’t bring our own answers to the problem… We find new answers within the problem.”
Founded by Mark Johnson and Ann Mullins in 1984 out of a passion for design and love of cities, Civitas began as a name scribbled on a cocktail napkin. The word “civitas” suggests civic-mindedness, citizenship and civility – a sense of shared community purpose that the firm embodies both in the urban places it reimagines and in its own collaborative culture of design experts.
