    002 Landscapes Original Sin (English)

    002 Landscapes Original Sin (English)

    Hello everyone! Welcome to the second episode of the Bravely Curious podcast where students from Cal Poly Pomona’s Landscape Architecture Department will continue the discussion as introduced by Maci from the Landscape Nerd Podcast about stealing, reclaiming, redefining, and protecting public and private spaces. In this episode, we will be delving into Landscape Architecture’s Original Sin which is based around the topic of stealing land. 
    Previously, Maci defined stealing for us as theft, to take unlawfully or without permission. She also discussed the need for us to talk about, confront, and unveil the truth behind the flaws and injustices of our nation’s past. That we can no longer hide behind such topics that are sensitive or controversial, we can no longer worry ourselves with the fear of confrontation and ownership of our faults. We are here to simply present these issues, lie them on the table and say, “here is what we are dealing with, here is how this is still a problem today, and this is what we can do as landscape architects to acknowledge and resolve these issues.”

    002 El Pecado Original (Español)

    ¡Hola a todos! Bienvenido al segundo episodio del podcast Bravely Curious, donde los estudiantes del Departamento de Arquitectura Paisajista de la Universidad Cal Poly Pomona continuarán la discusión como lo presentó Maci del Podcast Landscape Nerd sobre el robo, recuper, redefinir y la proteger los espacios públicos y privados. En este episodio, profundizaremos en el pecado original de la arquitectura del paisaje, que se basa en el tema del robo de tierras.
    Anteriormente, Maci definío el robo para nosotros como un acto de tomar ilegalmente o sin permiso. También habló sobre la necesidad de que hablemos, confrontemos y revelemos la verdad detrás de las fallas e injusticias del pasado de nuestra nación. Que ya no podemos escondernos detrás de temas tan sensibles o controversial, ya no podemos preocuparnos por el miedo al enfrentamiento y la apropiación de nuestras faltas. Estamos aquí simplemente para presentar estos problemas, ponerlos sobre la mesa y decir, “esto es lo que estamos tratando, así es como esto sigue siendo un problema hoy, y esto es lo que podemos hacer como arquitectos paisajistas para reconocer y resolver estos asuntos."

    004 Protecting (English)

    004 Protecting (English)

    On last week's episode of The Bravely Curious Podcast, the topic of Reclaiming and Redefining was covered. It discussed how change in the landscape based on societal shift, damage in built environments, and how a global pandemic is important to consider when redefining and reclaiming a landscape.  
    Hello everyone! My name is Ryan Ortiz, and I would like to welcome you all to our fourth episode of the Bravely Curious Podcast. In this episode we will be immersing ourselves into the importance of protecting and preserving our public and private landscape. But first we must define the differences between Preservation and Protection in the landscape. To preserve is to protect, to keep, to maintain the condition of; while to protect is to keep safe, to defend, to guard; against harmful human activities that have disrupted culture, climate and biodiversity of plant and animals. With that in mind we have separated our discussion into three parts. The first topic will cover indigenous cultures, followed by the second topic on the biodiversity of animals, plants, and the environment. And lastly, the topic of addressing the issues of climate change within the landscape.

    004 Proteger (Español)

    En el episodio de la semana pasada de la serie de podcasts, hablamos del tema de Recuperar y Redefinir. En el tema de es episodio, se discutió cómo es importante considerar un cambio en el paisaje basado en un cambio social, daño en el entorno construido o una pandemia global al redefinir y recuperar un paisaje.
    ¡Hola a todos! Me gustaría darles la bienvenida a todos a nuestro cuarto episodio del Bravely Curious Podcast.  En este episodio, nos enfocaremos en la importancia de proteger y preservar nuestro paisaje. Pero primero, debemos definir las diferencias entre Preservar y Proteger en el paisaje. Preservar es proteger, cuidar, y defender, mientras que proteger es mantener a salvo, defender, custodiar; contra las actividades humanas nocivas que han alterado la cultura, el clima y la biodiversidad de las plantas y  los animales. Con eso en mente, hemos dividido nuestra discusión en tres partes. El primer tema cubrirá las culturas indígenas, el segundo tema sera sobre la biodiversidad de animales, plantas y el medio ambiente. Y por último, el tema que abla acerca del cambio climático en el paisaje.
