Shifting Perceptions: Reconceiving Public Space in the American South

By: Harriett Jameson, LAF 2018 Fellow
LAF Fellowship for Innovation and Leadership

A Native Tennessean, Harriett (2014 Olmsted Scholar Finalist) explores the opportunities of public space in the South to catalyze social resiliency and reconciliation. She is interested in the power of place to shape our personal narratives and its ability to expand and reshape those narratives through sites of conscience. Recorded at the Landscape Architecture Foundation’s Innovation and Leadership Symposium on May 17, 2018. As part of the LAF Fellowship for Innovation and Leadership, fellows delivered presentations of their year long journey that highlighted their research and personal growth and shared bold visions for the future of landscape architecture.
