SPOTLIGHT mini-series: Capturing Perceptions: Instagram, Twitter, and Professional Practice - 1.0 PDH (LA CES/non-HSW)

Aug 18, 2016 1:00pm ‐ Aug 18, 2016 2:00pm

Credits: None available.

Visual social media such as Instagram and Twitter have the potential to offer more than a chronicle of our everyday lives. They allow landscape architects to reach into a vast storehouse of visual information and extract valuable information about the general public's shared landscape experiences. An ability to collect and analyze this information can give landscape architects, urban planners, and researchers insight into how snapshots reveal individual preferences and interpretations of the built environment.

This presentation will take the practitioner on a technological journey through the Instagram API Console and its potential when applied to a real site in an attempt to answer if this type of Big Data can be used to find hidden patterns and commonalities in the landscape. Webinar participants will learn how to use Twitter’s “Streaming API” to build their own tool for site analysis, post-occupancy evaluation, and design research.

Objectives:

  • Learn how Big Data is changing how the public views, collects and disseminates information about the landscape.
  • Learn how technology has changed how people view the landscape and how it has remained the same.
  • Learn how the tool can be applied to find hidden patterns and commonalities in the built environment.

SPOTLIGHT mini-series: Correlating Patterns in the Urban Landscape: Biophilia and Landscape Configuration - 1.0 PDH (LA CES/HSW)

Aug 15, 2016 2:00pm ‐ Aug 15, 2016 3:00pm

Credits: None available.

Innovators look towards natural ecology as a source for inspiration in the urban environment. As designers, we are attempting to identify connections between biomimicry, inspiration from nature, ecological design principles and biophilia, human beneficial connection, and love of nature. The aim is to establish a relationship between ecological principles of landscape configuration and biophilic patterns currently existing in urban areas.

Focusing on existing public parks and plazas within five European cities, patterns of biophilia were correlated against landscape configuration characteristics and principal components were extracted. Statistical analysis attempts to explain the identified relationships between public spaces and natural patterns, as well as conditions which are conducive to both human and biological life, biophilic patterns, and cultural appreciation for nature. The comparison: 1) illustrate how natural features are visually, physically, and spatially portrayed in the current built environment and 2) promote integration of natural ecosystems into urban culture.

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn how existing urban landscapes utilize ecological patterns, including biophilia and landscape configuration in their designs.
  • Learn about the potential benefits of integrating biophilia, biomimicry and landscape configuration into the built environment.
  • Learn a method to distinguish existing and design complex spatial landscape dynamics into the urban environment (for human and ecological benefit, through the development of biophilic patterns).

SPOTLIGHT mini-series: Urban Voids of Los Angeles - 1.0 PDH (LA CES/non-HSW)

Aug 10, 2016 1:00pm ‐ Aug 10, 2016 2:00pm

Credits: None available.

The City of Los Angeles has grown from urban sprawl, and evidentially inherent pockets of under-utilized, un-planned, or mis-used voids throughout the City. Setting up a kit of parts for reinvigorating/regenerating these spaces, this research attempts to inform and formulate different design strategies in approaching these urban voids. Whether the spaces can be enhanced in social connectivity, or improved in ecological performance, the study showcases a closer look in-between, and aim to enrich the potential growth of Los Angeles.

Learning Objectives:

  • To explore various urban voids in central Los Angeles and identify their correlation to its surroundings and potentials.
  • To explore design interventions that increase the usage of inactive urban spaces and promote social interactions with its urban setting.
  • To recognize natural process and enhance the ecological performance in their urban voids.

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

Aug 3, 2016 2:00pm ‐ Aug 3, 2016 3:00pm

Credits: None available.

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.

Learning 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.

Learn how the City of Scottsdale and Scottsdale Public Art work together to integrate public art into the city’s Transportation program. Topics covered will include: the Percent for Art ordinance that stipulates contributions from the city’s Capital Improvement Program, site selection, public engagement, design teams, and our annual community bike ride - Cycle the Arts, and more!

Recognized by the League of American Bicyclists as a Gold Level Bicycle Friendly Community, Scottsdale continues to expand the approximately 600-mile bikeway network with on-street bike lanes, paved paths, and unpaved trails through the Transportation Master Plan. Many of our 108 tunnels and bridges for bicyclists and pedestrians were designed by artists, including the Soleri Bridge and Plaza created by visionary architect Paulo Soleri.

Join us on a virtual bike tour of some of Scottsdale’s award-winning public art in and near downtown. Take the Indian Bend Wash Path through a series of parks that line one of the most innovative flood control projects in the nation.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand how Scottsdale integrates the League of American Bicyclists “5 E’s” (Engineering, Education, Enforcement, Encouragement, Evaluation/Planning) into the bicycle program for people of all ages and abilities.
  • Create partnerships and plan bike encouragement activities, events, and safety education.

Planting Design for Pollinators: Choosing the Best Plants and Using Them Effectively – 1.0 PDH (LA CES/HSW)

Jul 21, 2016 1:00pm ‐ Jul 21, 2016 2:00pm

Credits: None available.

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.

Learning 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.
