Our Beloved Fountain: Making Water Features Sustainable - 1.0 PDH (LA CES/HSW)

Mar 19, 2019 2:00pm ‐ Mar 19, 2019 3:00pm

Credits: None available.

Fountains are beloved features in many public places and contribute to quality of life while adding environmental benefits, particularly during hot summer months. However, many parks departments and commissioning bodies shy away from installing them due to the perceived high cost of installation and ongoing maintenance. Some recurring questions neighborhoods may face are whether alternative funding models can keep the water flowing if a city or town won’t perform regular upkeep. What are the impacts of a dormant fountain? What are the environmental effects, both positive and negative? We will explore these questions, explain the typical pool, pass through and recirculating systems, and share insights on sustainable best practices.

Hosted by the ASLA Water Conservation Professional Practice Network

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the social value of fountains and water features while balancing the economic and environmental costs of designing and maintaining them in the context of sustainability and the Triple Bottom Line (TBL).
  • Familiarize oneself with the basics of water feature layout and design to understand the requirements of equipment maintenance and minimize water waste.
  • Provide some examples of converting non-sustainable water features into sustainable ones through recirculation, filtration, and active management.

Designing (Digital) Landscapes: Using Social Media to Raise Awareness - 1.0 PDH (LA CES/non-HSW)

Feb 27, 2019 12:00pm ‐ Feb 27, 2019 1:00pm

Credits: None available.

Social media can be an invaluable tool to landscape architects and the larger design community. One of our profession’s biggest problems is a lack of recognition by allied professionals and clients. Social media plays a critical role in how digital-savvy landscape architects control the profession’s narrative in an architecture-focused media landscape.

This presentation will provide helpful tips for creating a social media strategy, define best practices, and explore ways to crowdsource content. We’ll also share tricks for organically attracting and retaining followers, tips for improving post engagement, and ways to prove ROI through routine analytics monitoring and reporting.

Learning Objectives:

  • Clearly identify which social media platforms their firms should be on (LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc.) and why.
  • Analyze social media insights (data) that will tell them when the best time for posting is, what content their audience likes, and how often they should be posting.
  • Understand how important reporting on social media performance is for ROI and justifying the investment of resources.

The GBCI course ID for this course is 0920018701, providing SITES-specific CE hours required to maintain SITES AP credentials. Participants will need to pass the exam at the end of the presentation in order to receive a certificate of completion. Participants will need to self-report CE hours through their credentials account on https://sitesonline.usgbc.org.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify strategies and standardized methods for data collection for use in quantifying and improving landscape performance benefits for environmental, socio-cultural, and economic performance. 
  • Learn a variety of methods to assess the effectiveness of conservation and/or restoration activities in order to achieve SITES v2 C4.7: Conserve and restore native plant communities. 
  • Identify methods for determining the overall health of a soil during the site assessment, construction, and post-occupancy phases of a project, and how these methods can be applied to achieve SITES v2 Construction P7.3: Restore soils disturbed by construction AND Construction C7.4: Restore soils disturbed by previous development. 
  • Explore quantitative and qualitative methods for designing and assessing a site for its ability to support social performance criteria, supporting physical activity of users, in order to achieve SITES v2 C6.5: Support physical activity.

An Instrumental Guide to Blending Music & Community - 1.0 PDH (LA CES/HSW)

Jan 30, 2019 12:00pm ‐ Jan 30, 2019 1:00pm

Credits: None available.

Music parks benefit every member of the community, but few communities have a music program available and affordable to everyone. A permanent installation of instruments changes that. A simplified system allows anyone to play, regardless of training or ability, and instruments can be designed for individual and ensemble play. Music transcends age, gender, ethnicity and mobility, and is a gathering force that builds better communities and helps make people kinder.

Learning Objectives:

  • Describe the many benefits of music on individuals, families, and communities.
  • Plan, design, and maintain a successful music park for maximum years of use.
  • Create the desired space utilization for a destination within a park.

The Play Environment: A New Paradigm for Play Areas – 1.0 PDH (LA CES/HSW)

Dec 11, 2018 1:00pm ‐ Dec 11, 2018 2:00pm

Credits: None available.

Play environments fulfill a vital role in the physical, social, and cognitive development of their users. These spaces allow kids and adults to engage all their senses to find calm and work together to assess and overcome challenges.

There are two important design trends that have helped amplify the reach and benefits of public play spaces over the past several years - inclusivity and nature play. We now see more parks and playgrounds that celebrate inclusive design. Rather than programming for specific separate user “restrictions,” play environments offer a range of accessibility and challenges that promotes side-by-side play. Integrating natural spaces allows a greater freedom of expression, imagination, creativity, and exploration.

These play environments blur the boundaries that separate people of differing abilities, ages, and interests. Creating inviting play environments that appeal to the largest possible number of people is a way to bring greater social vitality to any community.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understanding: Participants will learn how play environments differ from traditional design in a way that addresses the needs of a diverse population.
  • Evidence-Based: Participants will learn how studies in physical therapy, occupational therapy, and biophilic response affect the design of play environments.
  • Incorporation: Participants will learn how to incorporate strategies in their own projects to create a holistic play environment that benefits a large population of users.
  • Amplification: Participants will learn how strategies for creating play environments can be applied to schools, healthcare facilities, corporate, and residential landscapes.
