EXPANDING ELASTICITY IN THE LANDSCAPE

Credits: 1 PDH-HSW
Instructor: Greg Miller, Principal Landscape Architect – MRWM Landscape Architects

 
A lot has changed over the past year and public landscapes are increasingly recognized for their role in ecological resilience, social justice, mental well-being, physical health, and economic stability. Designing spaces that grow and adapt is a hallmark of landscape architecture, but designing them to be truly elastic is what makes them timeless.

This presentation investigates the benefits of elasticity and plasticity in natural systems and explores ways to apply these lessons to the built environment. These strategies reinforce and amplify the effectiveness of landscapes in creating stronger and healthier communities. Register above for on-demand viewing of the live April 15, 2021 webinar.

Learning Objectives:
1. Gain an understanding of how elasticity and plasticity creates resilient natural systems.
2. Learn how to apply these principles to landscapes in the built environment.
3. Explore the possibilities of incorporating increasing elasticity to the profession of landscape architecture.

INWOOD FOREST: EQUITY REIMAGINED IN THE FACE OF SUBURBAN DECLINE

Credits: 1.0 PDH – HSW
Instructors: Peter Caldwell, Senior Designer – Asakura Robinson

 
How an abandoned golf course in Houston, TX is leading to new opportunities for community renewal through unique flood mitigation approaches.

At a glance, the Inwood Forest neighborhood is idyllic. Designed as a suburban paradise with golf course winding throughout, this neighborhood is nestled along the bayou and boasts large stands of pre-existing Post Oaks. The failure of the golf course only seemed to highlight the natural beauty of this community just minutes from downtown Houston. As the daily routine of the course fell to quarterly mowing and maintenance of water features and low spots disappeared, the pristine links were replaced with wetland edges and scruffy scrub lines. Now as part of massive flood mitigation strategies this now distressed suburb is facing the replacement of their natural backyard with maximum volume detention basins. We’ll explore how this neighborhood came to be in this position and the strategies we’re using to create opportunities for a new vision of neighborhood based, flood detention design. Register above for on-demand viewing of the live Sept 16, 2020 webinar.

Learning Objectives:
Explore methods for contextualizing a community scaled project through unique stakeholder and government engagement strategies | Review methods for working within Intergovernmental Partnerships to develop new approaches for flood mitigation infrastructure projects | Discuss alternative processes for implementing ecological systems in traditional suburban environments
