Landscape architect and artist Martha Schwartz is resolved to help communities and cities revitalize and rebuild themselves on a social, economic and environmentally sustainable basis. Martha will discuss sustainability and design, her artistic influences and work, as well as her ambitions for the built environment. Martha Schwartz is a Professor of Landscape Architecture at Harvard University’s Graduate School of Design and the President of Martha Schwartz Partners who have offices in London and Boston.

Grand Canal Square in Dublin’s Dockalnds was designed by Martha Schwartz. The 10,000 sq metre square is one of the largest paved public spaces in Dublin city. The €8 million project is among the most innovative landscape design projects ever undertaken in Ireland and Grand Canal Square is expected to become a key cultural destination for Docklands and the city.

The Square features a striking composition of a red "carpet" extending from the theatre into and over the dock. This is crossed by a green "carpet" of paving with lawns and vegetation. The red "carpet" is made of bright red resin-glass paving covered with red glowing angled light sticks. The green "carpet" of polygon-shaped planters filled with marsh like vegetation provides seating and will connect the new hotel to the office development across the square.

Grand Canal Square is also criss-crossed by granite-paved paths that allow movement across it in any possible direction, while still allowing for the Square to host major public events such as festivals and performances. The layout can accommodate a diverse range of activities throughout the day and night.
