Urban Biodiversity: Leading Edge Sustainable Land Development and Landscape Design Projects
READ MORE ABOUT THIS COURSE
This second lecture in a series of three will explore the use of biodiversity and ecosystem services metrics and data in design projects, model assisted design and case studies such as Singapore, Colorado Springs, Los Angeles and San Francisco.
What you can learn.
- Learn how to apply the Biodiversity Index and metrics to design projects
- Understand site biodiversity as it relates to sustainability in planning communities and housing
- Use the biodiversity index with model assisted design
About this course:
Use of biodiversity and ecosystem services metrics and data in design projects, model assisted design, case studies (Singapore, Colorado Springs, Los Angeles, and San Francisco). Biodiversity considerations in design has broadened beyond traditional regulatory compliance for threatened and endangered species or water quality. Leveraging the broader opportunities of site biodiversity and ecosystems in a scientific and quantitative way is redefining sustainability for some of the highest profile urban design and land planning projects worldwide including urban cores such as Marina Bay in Singapore and the expansion of cities at the urban fringe such as Phoenix.Speakers include Steve Kellenberg, Kellenberg Studio/Urban Land Institute, Isaac Brown, D. Env., Senior Scientist at Stillwater Sciences and Stephanie Landregan, FASLA, UCLA Extension
This lecture is the second in a three-part lecture series on urban biodiversity. We invite you to join us for all three lectures.
