Landscape architecture projects require a balance of design with the need to protect people and the environment. Jason King and Jennifer D’Avanzo of Portland-based GreenWorks will use two case studies to investigate key challenges for Health, Safety and Welfare and opportunities and solving complex problems to achieve of project goals. Projects include Terminal 1, an urban waterfront redevelopment in Vancouver, Washington on industrial lands, and Reed’s Crossing in Hillsboro, Oregon, a new housing community woven with wetlands and open spaces. Topics include design for security and safety, stormwater and wetlands, structures, pollution, grading and drainage, and planting design.
Health, Safety and Welfare
1) Gain perspectives on health, safety and welfare issues, and how they impact the design process for landscape architecture project in both urban and suburban contexts.
2) Provide examples and strategies of interpretation and how key knowledge and skills can be creative design solutions to mitigate safety, security, and environmental concerns.
3) Learn about resources to aid in supporting design decisions and ensuring evidence-based compliance to make a case for specific solutions supporting key HSW goals.
