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
