Engaging the Commons -- The Knowlton School Spring 2023 Baumer Lecture Series

The Knowlton School invites practitioners and scholars to think about how the design professions’ particpate in (and with) the dense social and political webs of the built environment, and how active practices might engage these places—our “commons.”

Azzurra Cox is a landscape architect and writer interested in the power of landscapes to shape and reflect collective narratives.

As associate and narrative specialist at Seattle-based GGN, she has worked on urban-scale projects across the country. Azzurra brings a range of experiences in the worlds of publishing, curation, and design activism to her practice and research, which center the myths and memories that live and are expressed in the land. She was named the 2016 National Olmsted Scholar by the Landscape Architecture Foundation for her research on African-American cultural landscapes in St. Louis, and she has taught in the landscape architecture program at the Harvard University Graduate School of Design. Azzurra, who is based in Detroit, is the Places Critic-in-Residence in Landscape Architecture.
