This event is part of the Home and Away lecture series at the Daniels Faculty.

John Beardsley is an author, curator, and teacher. He is program director for garden and landscape studies at Dumbarton Oaks and former Adjunct Professor at the Harvard Graduate School of Design, where he taught from 1998-2013. John Beardsley is the 2018/19 Michael Hough / Ontario Association of Landscape Architects Visiting Critic.

Georges Farhat is an architect (DPLG, Paris-Belleville) and landscape historian (Ph.D. History of Art, Sorbonne Paris). He approaches landscape architectural history through the biophysical and cultural dynamics of design processes and, conversely, examines modern and contemporary landscapes through their historical background.

Doors open at 6pm. Ticket holders must arrive by 6:20pm (with their printed or mobile ticket) to claim their seats. There will be a rush line for those without tickets. Any unclaimed seats will be released to the rush line at 6:20pm.
