**Title:** Random planar geometry and the directed landscape

**Abstract:** The directed landscape is a random `directed metric' on the spacetime plane that arises as the scaling limit of integrable models of last passage percolation. It is expected to be the universal scaling limit for all models in the KPZ universality class for random growth and random planar metrics. In this talk, I will describe its construction and some aspects of its geometry
