Understanding the environmental, social and economic benefits of sustainable landscapes is essential for designers, developers, investors, and policymakers who influence land development and want better results. This session introduces and explores the concept of landscape performance and why it is critical to achieving sustainability and reaching key decision-makers, with a particular focus on examples from sustainable campuses in the United States. The Landscape Architecture Foundation will present an overview of the Landscape Performance Series, an online, interactive set of resources to help evaluate performance, show value and make the case for sustainable landscape solutions. Learn how the Case Study Briefs, Benefits Toolkit, Fast Facts, and more can be used to evaluate and demonstrate the impact of sustainable campus landscapes and how you can be part of this growing online resource.
