The debate is under way between "urbanism" and "landscape urbanism". Which approach is better for creating healthy urban environments and green infrastructure? This presentation discusses how landscape architects are well positioned to serve the public well-being from the regional scale to the specific building site.
1) Acquire a working definition of green infrastructure and its evolution through history.
2) Determine the scales by which green infrastructure can be applied and the criteria by which it can be integrated with the design of urban landscapes.
3) Understand what a systems approach to green infrastructure means and how this supports the planning and design spheres of practice.
4) Learn through succesful case studies how green infrastructure becomes a model for the planning and design of urban space.
