Landscape architects do not think of historic preservation when designing public streets as they focus on contemporary circulation needs. However, streets have dynamic histories in most cities. This session explores how landscape architects can draw upon history to enrich the designs for urban public street from China to Denver

Learning Objectives:

  • Explore and challenge ourselves to understand how history and preservation can enrich contemporary street design.
  • Study how history broadens design approaches to addressing contemporary needs.
  • Discover how design history reveals cultural differences that can be expressed in the public space of streets.
  • Investigate the multiple roles that designers play in the design of public spaces, particularly streets and roads.

The information was interesting. I really enjoyed the presentation made by David Malda. Specifically, his comparative diagrams of how the streets had evolved over time. There was a question on the exam which was incomplete.
