LA327 Theory of Landscape Architecture will offer landscape performance as a lens through which to explore resilient by design as a design theory for climate adaptation with support from the Landscape Architecture Foundation Landscape Performance Education Grant. https://lafoundation.org/news-events/blog/2017/07/21/lp-education-grant-recipients/
Landscape Performance for Climate Adaptation: Resilient by Design as an Emerging Theory of Urban Design and Landscape Architecture, Presentation to Landscape Architecture Foundation
On August 7, Dr. Hope Hui Rising made a presentation to the Landscape Architecture Foundation with four other professors from around the country. Her presentation focused on the use of landscape performance to motivate proactive funding mechanism for climate-adaptive interventions, which often rely on disaster-driven funding, by documenting their short-term co-benefits as ecosystem services that can contribute to long-term resilience incrementally.
