Landscape architects are keenly aware of the restorative qualities, whether behavioral, ecological, or societal, that are inherent in the design and functioning of our built environments.
We see the outcomes of human actions on the earth’s ability to respond to significant natural events, and raise awareness about the ecological benefits in protecting natural systems that mitigate the impact of these events.
Landscape architects are ideally positioned to lead the charge and promote the health of our built environments, while at the same time creating inspirational places that link us to our past and our future; reinforcing community connections and neighborhoods through civic engagement; providing opportunities for active and passive play; and educating us about our surroundings.
We are constantly developing new methodologies for incorporating these principles into every aspect of planning and design through a wide range of project types including: parks, civic and academic campuses, housing developments, urban infrastructure, master planning, and environmental restoration.
The projects highlighted in this exhibit illustrate the significant contribution landscape architects have made to improve our built environment and move us toward a more sustainable future.
The third annual exhibition and fundraiser event launched on November 4th 2013 in Gould Court. Our exhibition featured 33 projects from 24 firms/non-profits. Over a hundred design professionals, students, faculty, and alumni gathered to view the inspiring breadth of work on display.
