The purpose of this course is to provide inspirational tools that promote conversation and open minds (and funding) for more comprehensive outdoor spaces. We will examine the critical role that site furnishings and supporting technology play in meeting the unique and evolving needs of outdoor space, by presenting and exploring insights and solutions in a range of outdoor environments - from college, healthcare, and corporate campuses, to transit, living and recreational spaces. We believe outdoor space has the ability to connect people with nature and each other in meaningful ways and that this potential can be optimized with smart site furnishing and supporting technology applications.
Our goals are:
1) to present you with trends, data, and ideas that are influencing the use of site furnishings to optimize the potential and value of outdoor space.
2) to promote conversation that opens minds and supports funding for thoughtfully planned outdoor spaces.
3) to inspire you to apply the information presented here and realize the added value and wide range of benefits to your practice and the clients you serve.
