The population of Lilongwe has doubled every decade since 1980. The problems currently facing the city in terms of power supply, water quality, environmental protection, public health, and transportation will only worsen as the current urban growth pattern continues.
The talk will discuss how landscape architecture and the space between buildings can be used to minimize the negative impacts of growth. Historical and current examples of urban development both positive and negative will be presented in order to facilitate a discussion on the future growth of Lilongwe.
Stuart Jones earned a master of landscape architecture from the University of Georgia in 2012. His primary focus at University was on green infrastructure and urban design. He has lived in Lilongwe for six months and is excited to share some of the current trends from America on urban land use.
