Katherine Melcher, an associate professor of landscape architecture in the College of Environment and Design, has created the Community Landscape Lab to engage students and community groups using landscape architecture as the means to acuate social change. Through the Community Landscape Lab, Professor Melcher partners students with clients in a Master's level Landscape Architecture (MLA) studio to provide stakeholders with design concepts and engagement strategies useful to the community. Bringing more awareness to the lab's work, students developed a blog to publish information about the projects they are working on, including background information, weekly updates on community feedback, and their design recommendations.
"A City Under the Sedums: Vegetated Roof Adoption in a Modern Urbanizing World." This January, Master of Landscape Architecture student James Schulte had the opportunity to present his thesis research in the Salon Series hosted by TEDxUGA.
We are pleased to share with you some of our greatest recent accomplishments.
One of the best ways for students to learn about what their career will be like after college is to talk to professionals in the field. This semester the bachelor's and master's students in the Landscape Architecture program spoke via Zoom with CED alumni in landscape architecture and related careers across the country.
