Description
The Landscape Architecture Foundation’s Case Study Investigation (CSI) program supports faculty-student research teams who work with designers to assess and document the performance of sustainable landscape projects as Case Study Briefs. In this webinar, participants from the 2018 CSI program present their process and most compelling findings from their efforts to quantify environmental, economic, and social benefits. The four teams studied seven exemplary landscape projects, including Hunter’s Point South Waterfront Park in Queens, Historic Fourth Ward Park in Atlanta, and Tom Hanafan River’s Edge Park in Council Bluffs, Iowa.
