Rebroadcast: The Lungs of the City: Landscape Design for Air Quality

Oct 15, 2019 12:00pm ‐ Oct 15, 2019 1:00pm

Credits: None available.

Standard: $50.00


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:

  1. 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.
  2. Uncover site-specific data which supports the faith-based claim that parks are the lungs of the city.
  3. 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.

The overall content was excellent, but the presentation of it was way too short. It would have been nice to drill down much further on each of the topics/examples/case studies. Also, I transposed some numerals in my providing my ASLA Number; the correct Number is 008265, not 08625. Can someone please notify me by e-mail (ceejay@cjfa.com) that this has been corrected, or what additional action I need to take. Thank You Cee Jay Frederick
