LA-Bradley Cantrell LectureCampus Calendar

Thursday, January 30, 2014
5:30 pm - 6:30 pm

Location: Gateway Center

Event Description: Bradley Cantrell
Thursday, January 30, 2014
Director, Robert Reich School of Landscape Architecture, Louisiana State University

Bradley Cantrell's research and teaching focuses on using digital film and techniques to represent landscape form and phenomenology. This work in digital representation ranges from improving the workflow of digital media in the design process, to providing a methodology for deconstructing landscape through compositing and film editing techniques. He is also actively researching and prototyping interactive landscapes using devices which express site characteristics through ambient cues. A continuation of work started at the Harvard Graduate School of Design, this research aims to strengthen designers' analysis and understanding of landscape and the everyday use of space.

Cantrell's current work at LSU is dedicated to advancing the science and art of landscape representation through computing and data visualization. He is currently supervising research at the Terrain Kinetics (TiKi) Lab, an interdisciplinary facility for design/infrastructure visualization and interactive/reactive landscapes.

Cantrell is the author of 2 books: Digital Drawing for Landscape Architecture: Contemporary Techniques and Tools for Digital Representation in Site Design (Bradley Cantrell and Wes Michaels, 2010); and Modeling the Environment: Techniques and Tools for the 3D Illustration of Dynamic Landscapes (Bradley Cantrell and Natalie Yates, 2012)

Cantrell was recently awarded the Rome Prize in landscape architecture for 2013-2014.
