Description

Research shows that visitors' cultural and economic background impact how they experience landscapes. Yet, most landscape architects in America design for a single 'universal' experience that reflects white middle class culture. What would change if paths, picnic tables, lawns and groves were designed from a diversity of cultural and class perspectives. Could we create parks as diverse and rich as America itself?

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn to recognize the cultural, class and gender basis and bias of landscape designs and elements.
  • Learn a range of approaches for designing inclusive landscapes that serve and welcome all visitors and users equally.
