This lecture touches upon the climate challenges we face and the impact these have on the value of the landscape, our communities, and economies. Using real life projects, Dr Anastasia Nikologianni discusses innovative models that have demonstrated the significance of policy, transformation, and the landscape in strategic design within multidisciplinary teams and collaboration processes.

Dr Anastasia Nikologianni holds a PhD in Landscape Architecture and Climate Emergency with regards to the role of low carbon, spatial quality, and the contribution design can make to the development of regional landscape-based spatial strategies. Most of her recent research has focused on climate emergency issues, the extent to which spatial quality and low carbon can be delivered in regional landscape design, as well as the way visual representations contribute to the design process. She’s part of CATiD at Birmingham City University (UK), an international, multidisciplinary research, design and consultancy hub. She is also the Chair of the Emerging Professionals Advocate of IFLA World aiming to support landscape architects and designers as well as a member of both the Policy and Communications Committee and the Climate Emergency and Biodiversity Response Panel for the Landscape Institute (UK).

‘Thinkers and Doers’ aims to bring together practitioners, scholars, students and the wider community of landscape architecture and affiliated built environment disciplines to share ideas and to hear the latest innovations in the field. This online series brings together nationally and internationally renowned experts through an initiative between the NZILA Wellington Branch and the Landscape Architecture Programme at Te Herenga Waka—Victoria University of Wellington.
