Courageous by Design: Three Perspectives on Leading with Landscape Architecture with Lisa Switkin

Using the lens of cohabitation, Switkin examines projects that provide innovative and strategic responses to stormwater management, resiliency and sea level rise while providing public space (River Ring, South Bay Sponge, Qianhai Water City); regenerative landscapes where the process of making, remaking, reclaiming and ongoing use and stewardship is part of the design (FreshKills, Shelby Farms Park); and projects that infuse multi-sensory and multi-dimensional experiences and narratives with long-term strategic partnerships and engagement to foster connection (Domino Park, Tidal Basin). Myriad scales, intentional form and legibility, and rethinking how we define beauty, aesthetics and nature through process, design, craft, engagement, partnership and material specificity.
