Virtual Spring Garden Lectures: Creating Sustainable Community Focused Open Space
Time & Location
About the Event
Landscape architecture has been the most viable way to positively shape place, and give vulnerable populations not only a voice, but a tool for strengthening and sustaining the communities in which they live. This presentation will explore 3 open space projects, at various urban scales, that exemplify the principles of environmental, socialcultural and economic sustainability, through trans-active community engagement and creative place making.
