Description

We have addressed stormwater quality, but what about air quality? Through this session, panelists will present research and built projects to show how to begin to approach this problem that negatively impacts the public health of the most disadvantaged populations in this country and worldwide through landscape design tactics.

Learning Objectives:

  • Unpack the historic conception of parks as the lungs of the city and inspire creative thinking about the next great challenge in landscape architecture: air quality.
  • Uncover site-specific data which supports the faith-based claim that parks are the lungs of the city.
  • We take faith that trees clean the air—is this true? What data supports this claim? What about pollen and allergies? Begin to understand pollutants that can be addressed with plantings.
  • Explore how we define air quality in all its complexities: air temperature, humidity, pollen, particulates, etc. Begin to discuss what other kinds of landscape materials can help clean the air.
