Description:
Coastal Louisiana is a national treasure and one of the most productive estuaries in the world. However, like many areas along our nation’s shores, Louisiana is facing growing threats from climate change, sea level rise, and increasing flood risk. This webinar discusses how Louisiana is addressing this problem through an ecologically-based planning framework described in Louisiana’s Comprehensive Master Plan for a Sustainable Coast and is creating a more sustainable coastal landscape and resilient communities through the implementation of large-scale Coastal Ecological Restoration projects. Presenters will discuss ongoing efforts to develop a comprehensive statewide planning framework to prioritize restoration and protection projects, as well as site-level planning, design, and implementation of restoration projects in a range of ecologies across the Louisiana coast.

Objectives:
  • Understand an integrated, systems-based approach to environmental analysis, planning, and design - with emphasis on basin-scale ecosystem restoration.
  • Become familiar with working in linked socio-ecological systems, the need for interdisciplinary planning teams, and the importance of incorporating holistic ecological, economic, social, and cultural goals, objectives, and performance criteria.
  • Understand the complexities of implementing large-scale barrier island and marsh creation projects.

Description:
The presentation covers historic paving materials and how they can be used in today’s designs.  A brief overview of the historic brick manufacturing processes and stone sources are provided.  Information is provided on how these products may contribute to LEED & SITES credits.  Both historic and modern installation methods of bricks and cobbles are outlined including permeable pavements applications.  Options for ADA compliant installations are reviewed.   Additional reclaimed materials such as curbing, stone sidewalk slabs, stone building elements and large stone block are also discussed.   Samples of materials are circulated to understand the characteristics of the materials. 

Objectives:
  • Recognize and identify what reclaimed materials are reliably available for use in designs.
  • Demonstrate how reclaimed materials can contribute to the historic sensitivity of projects.
  • Select proper materials for various residential, commercial, and historic restoration projects.
  • Specify installation methods for various reclaimed materials in a range of applications including ADA.
  • Identify project elements that can utilize reclaimed materials and may qualify for SITES and/or LEED credits.

1315 Peachtree: Creative Stormwater Solutions in a Dense Urban Context - 1.0 PDH (LA CES/HSW)

Description:
Essentially “upcycling” an outdated office building, Perkins+Will’s transformation of 1315 Peachtree Street stands as a new civic model on Atlanta’s signature street. Where there once stood a prominent driveway and parking deck, now a pedestrian-oriented plaza creates an open-air living room and reconnects the building to the street. The site design showcases innovative use of materials and commitment to sustainable practices in the landscape, including creative stormwater management solutions throughout the site, such as cisterns, rain gardens, and porous paving surfaces. Certified LEED® Platinum, the project is a living model for small urban sites with big goals for sustainability.

Objectives:
  • Explore strategies for creative stormwater management in a dense urban area.
  • Understand benefits of an interdisciplinary design approach.
  • Become familiar with best practices for use of innovative materials, in a collaborative design and permitting process.

Risk Management at Nature Play and Learning Areas: A Risk Analysis Approach - 1.0 PDH (LA CES/HSW)

This session is $40.00 for ASLA Members
Date/Time:
Wednesday, September 17th, 1:00-2:00 PM  Eastern Time (US & Canada)
$165.00
Register
Description:
Risk management is a paramount issue in the design of nature play and learning areas. This presentation provides background on the dominant standards-based approach to risk management in children’s play areas, considers its application to nature play areas, then presents an alternative approach to risk management based on analysis of actual risk.  The presenter is a coauthor of the recently released guide for the design of nature play and learning areas, Nature Play & Learning: creating spaces where children engage with nature.

Objectives:
  • Understand the historical development of the current standards-based approach to risk management in children’s play settings.
  • Understand and be able to accurately use technical terms such as 'hazard' and 'risk.'
  • Be prepared to converse with local legal authorities to determine applicable design standards and liability standards for nature play areas.
  • Understand the core elements of a risk-based risk management protocol.
