Description

Campus landscape designs can serve as testing grounds to advance the application of ecological principles in land planning. Purposefully designed to regenerate many ecological processes, these landscapes can enhance academic programs (sciences, engineering, arts, social sciences) for teaching, research, and community engagement.

Learning Objectives:

  • See how planting design elements of campus master plans can advance the curriculum goals of the client institution.
  • Understand how designing for storm water can double as educational features for students of engineering, design, and hydrology.
  • Learn how partnerships among designers, operations staff, and educators can define key design elements and management requirements to maintain educationally valuable features.
  • Discuss how non-student members of the campus community, including employees and K-12 students, can learn sustainability lessons from the campus design and bring these messages back to their communities.
