An integrated and holistic approach to landscape architecture:



From a broader perspective:

To take the long view and push for:
1) ecosystem services & natural capital
2) environmentally friendly land management
3) Sustainable urban development


From a design perspective:

To be based on three principles:
1) enhancing green infrastructure and biodiversity
2) meeting social needs at a community level
3) allowing for the design to change over time


Data driven approach

Data driven approach in the landscape... for instance:
* collect data on green infrastructure and ecology
* understand how to use this information to improve the environment, communities and the economy.
* provide an example of how economic development and the environment can both thrive.
