Coastlines and Climate Change

Published: 
Nov 9, 2016
For two weeks this summer, the magnificent brick archways, colorful tile mosaics and stained glass of Barcelona’s Hospital de Sant Pau welcomed associate professor of landscape architecture Maria Goula and students from her course Landscape Resiliency. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the art nouveau buildings also house the United Nations Human Settlements Program. Goula and her students traveled there to learn about a different kind of fragile heritage: that of the coastal landscape of the Philippines. Goula is working with the City Resilience Profiling Program under an agreement with UN-Habitat to research ways to design for resiliency in the coastal Philippines.

Jamie Vanucchi presented at Landscape Architecture as Necessity

Published: 
Nov 9, 2016
Assistant Professor Jamie Vanucchi presented her paper, Landscape architecture in an emerging era of the energy landscape, at the Landscape Architecture as Necessity Conference, hosted by the USC School of Architecture, on September 22- 24. The conference proposed that landscape architecture is uniquely able to address current and future challenges associated with climate change by synthesizing science, engineering, and culture. Additionally, our ability to think visually and creatively can and should be used as tools for analysis and communication.
 
Jamie's paper addressed changes in the energy landscape, from large scale public works to dispersed methods of localized collection and distribution. This shift has widespread implications for environmental impacts and patterns of land use. Landscape architects can use their skills and tools to create deeper understandings of these issues, and to guide these transitions. As examples, she examines hydropower and hydraulic fracturing in the Susquehanna watershed.

Published: 
Nov 9, 2016
Third year graduate student Lauren Butts was awarded the E. Gorton Davis Traveling Fellowship, which funded a trip to Germany and Italy to explore post- industrial landscapes. Lauren is interested in how the histories of these sites are retained through repurposing, instead of being demolished and erased. She visited the office of Latz + Partner in Munich, a landscape architecture firm that specializes in post-industrial landscapes. She also visited Landschaftspark Duisburg Nord (designed by Peter Latz) in Duisburg, Germany and the Zollevrerin Coal Mine Industrial Complex in Essen, Germany. She also visited Parco Dora in Turin, Italy.

Third year graduate student Quinn Uesugi was awarded the E. Gorton Davis Traveling Fellowship. She traveled to Sweden and Denmark to learn about “Quiet Zones” in city parks and neighborhoods, and to explore how these cities have designed with sound in mind. She recorded ambient noise in several cities and spoke with planners and professionals concerned with noise, including Per Hedfors, a planner in Osthammar who concentrates on soundscapes, and Michael Grunditz, who is developing a Soundscape Characterization Tool app. Towns and cities visited include Osthammar, Oregrund, Malmo, and Gothenburg in Sweden; and Oslo in Norway.
