Landscape architects are working on increasingly complex sites with layered site histories and foundations. This session explores designed plant communities from eco-modeling of native communities to embracing spontaneous species. Recent works by Hoerr Schaudt Landscape Architects, P. Clifford Miller Landscape Artistry, and Stephen Stimson Associates will be examined.

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn from a site’s story to understand how natural and cultural histories impact their developments.
  • Examine the value of native to spontaneous plant communities to address complex site conditions.
  • Review the challenges of plant establishment on virgin sites to green roofs.
  • Explore the challenges of maintenance and long term resilience of designed plant communities.
