About this event

This lecture, co-hosted by The Place Bureau and Protein Agency, explores our relationship with nature in urban spaces.

Rosanna Vitiello, Founder of The Place Bureau, and Gemma Jones, Insight Director at Protein, will discuss how ethnographic research and trend forecasting can be used to imagine a future 100 years from now… what if the city is returned to nature? How will our relationship with nature change in that context? How might we communicate better with nature?

The Place Bureau will focus on how we build relationships with place through landscape, while Protein will share insight into the tools they use to help their clients make informed and impactful decisions about the future.
