(or is it, “How Has Landscape Architecture Changed Development?”)
Leaders from the American Society of Landscape Architects, the Urban Land Institute and the residential real estate development sector take a visionary look at development and landscape architecture in Greater Southern California’s post-expansionist future. The importance of lively, appealing public space as a component of a thriving community; the critical role landscape architecture plays in the creation of reinvigorating open spaces in urban, mid-urban and suburban residential settings; achieving fusion of the built and natural environments; designing systems that extend beyond property lines and considering the impacts on adjacent or downstream properties; challenging traditional concepts of development and landscape design; the new “open space” amenities of development, the trend toward “green” and sustainable development – two Builders and two Landscape Architects will muse over the trends they see on the horizon and the innovations that are working.
