The General Services Administration is working with landscape architects to change the federal real estate portfolio from the outside in. From both perspectives, GSA representatives and landscape architects describe this evolving landscape emphasis, the SITES certification framework, and how landscapes are re-created, re-purposed, and re-interpreted.
1) Learn about GSA policies, programs, and projects to promote sustainable landscape design.
2) Explore how the SITES design process can renew sustainable, visually evocative landscapes.
3) Apply sustainable elements to the larger urban-design context and local cultural/historic expressions.
4) Examine innovative methods for strategic demolition and material reuse on an existing site.
