Resilient Urban Environments: Landscape Architect as Instigator of Change
Drake of dLand Studio will discuss how the impacts of climate change
call for the development of new infrastructure systems that can be more
responsive to sea level rise and storm surge. Landscape architecture has
tremendous economic power and case studies will show how designers can
demonstrate that value. Through visualization of data to improve
understanding about the financial incentives of good environmental
design, these methods can also help to detangle the bureaucratic web
surrounding complex jurisdictional environments. Our knowledge when
communicated clearly can make real change happen.
