Learning Objectives:
  • Gain applicable skills to enhance drawing sets at all phases for clarity, precision, and coordination.
  • Understand ways to better conduct site visits to keep disruptions to a minimum, avoid delays, and resolve issues.

  • Understand the Deaf community and disabled community and their shared histories, the significance of the ADA, and social model vs medical model of disability in relation to the built environment.
  • Learn the history and specific needs of the Deaf community, the development and application of DeafSpace guidelines, and their application to landscape architecture through DeafScape.
  • Learn to intentionally transform everyday thinking about who we design for, the urgency of including disabled people as stakeholders and experts, and how public policy can deeply influence Universal Design.
  • Learn how to identify and communicate, as an abled person, with Deaf and disabled people in the design process.

This panel explores designing for a changing climate through four projects of varying scale and geographic context.

The GBCI course ID for this course is 0920023417, 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.

Please complete a brief evaluation of this Online Learning presentation.

Learning Objectives:
  • Learn about current trends and principles of designing with water—surviving, adapting, and thriving in the face of climate change.
  • Identify opportunities to treat stormwater in design as a resource rather than a threat by leveraging it for improved sustainability and social welfare.
  • Understand how landscape architecture design can help shift the public’s perception of stormwater and flooding.
