Smartcities, Resilient Landscapes


Lecturer's Abstract

In this lecture based on his latest book ’Smartcities, Resilient Landscapes + Eco-warriors’ (2019), Professor CJ Lim explores the discourse of climate change, and the potential to improve the ecological function of existing habitats and create new landscapes that are beneficial to ecology and resilience.

CJ's notion of the Smartcity was developed through a series of international case studies, some commissioned by government organisations, others speculative and polemic. Following on from the success of the first edition ‘Smartcities + Eco-Warriors’ (2010), this second edition has nine new case studies, and additional ecological sustainability studies investigating the romance of trees.
