How does landscape architects help the environment?

They plan and design dense, walkable communities that reduce transportation emissions and expansion. They make the built environment more energy and carbon efficient with strategies such as green roofs, water-efficient design, and the use of sustainable building materials and practices. Many landscapes are enriched with plants through different approaches, as you can read (and watch the videos) in the article 9 incredible ways to use plants. Provide proper organization to space For the success of any landscape design, organization is the key word.

I attended the annual conference of the American Society of Landscape Architects in New Orleans last weekend and went out as usual spending time with landscape architects convinced that the profession is too little appreciated. Unlike building design, the design of open spaces, a term that encompasses the entire territory that lies outside the walls of a building and is therefore within the purview of landscape architects, is a much less documented process in the fields of public culture. O'Donnell, FASLA, AICP, director of Heritage Landscapes LLC, architects and planners of preservation landscapes. People like to move around a space with ease while enjoying the view, and the landscape architecture is there to adapt to people's needs.

However, when it comes to dealing with a changing climate, the landscape architecture profession is in a unique position to meet the challenge. Goal 6, which calls on nations to “ensure the availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all”, is perhaps the most directional contribution to the objectives achieved by landscape architects. Although its enormous scale is rare in most landscape architecture projects, its attention to the ecology of the Earth and its potential to promote biodiversity is a source of inspiration for all projects that aim to offset the impacts of climate change on vulnerable species. Landscape architects identify areas of opportunity or setbacks that may cause restrictions and also evaluate aspects of the landscape (geology, hydrology, scenic features, etc.).

Landscape architects are already working on designing better intersections, complete green streets and multimodal corridors that contribute to achieving this important objective. However, the type of plants selected for a given environment, the way in which they are arranged and the way in which they are maintained are vital elements in determining the real carbon sequestration potential of different landscapes. The new Memorial Park master plan, created by Nelson Byrd Woltz Landscape Architects, responds to two extreme weather events that wreaked havoc on the sprawling 1500 acre site of Hurricane Ike and to a scorching drought with a holistic approach that places ecology at the center of its design. Anyone who is in the slightest contact with landscape architecture knows that the field of this profession is incredibly wide.
