Instructor: Greg Miller, Principal Landscape Architect - MRWM Landscape Architects

A lot has changed over the past year and public landscapes are increasingly recognized for their role in ecological resilience, social justice, mental well-being, physical health, and economic stability. Designing spaces that grow and adapt is a hallmark of landscape architecture, but designing them to be truly elastic is what makes them timeless.

This presentation investigates the benefits of elasticity and plasticity in natural systems and explores ways to apply these lessons to the built environment. These strategies reinforce and amplify the effectiveness of landscapes in creating stronger and healthier communities.

Learning Objectives:

1. Gain an understanding of how elasticity and plasticity creates resilient natural systems.

2. Learn how to apply these principles to landscapes in the built environment.

3. Explore the possibilities of incorporating increasing elasticity to the profession of landscape architecture.
