Geographies of Innovation
Geographies of Innovation: vanguard landscape technology and infrastructure from the United State Patent and Trademark Office
Geographies of Innovation reveals a history of design innovation at the intersection of landscape, technology, infrastructure, and ecology as represented by patents granted by the United States Patent and Trademark Office from the late 19th through the mid 20thcentury. The exhibition presents new perspectives and historical research on ecological technology, landscape systems, and green infrastructure across a range of scales, from the invention of the vertical garden in the 1930’s, to living and dynamic levees systems prototyped in the late 19th century.
