Description:

For the past 14 years, Ilisa Goldman has specialized in creating neighborhood public spaces and dynamic outdoor learning environments for children of all ages to play, learn, and develop a relationship with the natural world. Using a strategic design process, Goldman works directly with youth in underserved communities to transform neglected spaces into thriving neighborhood gathering places. These important projects help to improve the quality of life for youth and their communities in San Diego through art-based, place-making projects. Learn how community organizations, landscape architects, artists, and public agencies join together to transform underutilized and blighted areas into inspiring public places that improve livability, health, and safety.

 

Objectives:

  • Learn how cross sector collaboration can transform neglected spaces into thriving neighborhood gathering places.
  • Gain insight into the methodology used to engage communities and their youth in creative place making.
  • Examine strategies of creative place making as a way to build community strength and capacity.

Description:

We’ve seen the headlines. Bee communities, both wild and managed, are struggling. Habitat loss has been identified as one of the main factors attributing to their decline, making the restoration of pollinator habitat a nation-wide priority. Landscape architects have the opportunity to play an important role in bringing back our pollinators—choosing the best plants for pollinators and designing with them effectively. Scientist and Landscape Designer Annie White will share her experiences studying the fascinating ways in which plants and pollinators interact in designed landscapes. She’ll discuss the best types of plants for pollinators and tips for designing with them. Annie will also discuss her groundbreaking research on pollinator preferences for native plant species versus native cultivars.

 

Objectives:

  • Become familiar with the fundamentals of how plants and pollinators interact in the landscape.
  • Understand some of the benefits and trade-offs of using native, near-native, native cultivar, and non-native plants in pollinator-friendly planting designs.
  • Understand basic approaches for designing landscapes that balance aesthetics with maximizing habitat for pollinators.

The Social Engineering of Flood Recovery - 1.0 PDH (LA CES/HSW)

Description:

One of the biggest hurdles faced by communities recovering from a flood is that the community itself needs to come together, become more involved and develop new partnerships to move forward with recovery. As landscape architects who work for government agencies on behalf of a community to restore devastated amenities and facilities, we see how quickly plans with the best intentions can be derailed solely based on the process used to develop them.

Many plans need to be driven by the engineer or Town in order to meet funding, permitting and requirements. With a community driven project, the people themselves set the priorities and endorse action as it moves forward over the years of reconstruction and recovery. This presentation centers on how true collaboration between landscape architects and engineers can provide a better outcome that balances the social needs of a community with the technical needs of a floodplain.

 

Objectives:

  • Understand the value of landscape architecture in flood recovery.
  • Understand the importance of community input during the planning process.
  • Understand how to develop and leverage partnerships to increase community support.

Presenter(s):
Mark Wilcox , ASLA, Principal, DHM Design
