Landscape architects are expanding our reach, tackling complex issues of resiliency, equity, and social justice. By working more upstream in the design process, we are developing regional strategies with robust civic engagement, thinking in non-traditional ways about how to design traditional landscapes, acting as champions of biodiversity and stewards of conservation, changing who is at the table when we design and build cities, and advocating for systemic changes to our relationship with agriculture. Michael will share a selection of current Sasaki projects from around the world that are addressing these complex issues head on.
