1. Showcase fabrication processes and the beauty of ‘craft’ in landscape architecture, while examining ways to steward ‘craft’ in the field. 2.

Discover how landscape architects and fabricators address the unexpected technical challenges in design, and understand the value of mock-ups and managing client expectations. 4. Understand the collaborative nature of fabrication and knowledge-sharing between landscape architects, designers, and craftspeople that results in long-term value for all.
