The Fourth National Climate Assessment, at 1,656 pages, carves out quite a bit of work for individuals, companies, societies, governments, and, you won’t be surprised to hear, for landscape architects to lower atmospheric carbon emissions and cope urgently with the effects of what’s been burned already. There was a lot of media coverage of the climate report, which is the latest scientific summary by 13 federal agencies of climate change impacts on the United States and its economy. Some journalists were flapping about the timing of its release by the White House on Thanksgiving Friday, the comedy of which was found to be that the timing may have boosted rather than dulled attention to the report—if dulling it was the point. We’ll never know what effect the timing had. There…

YOU MISSED THE WOMENIn reading the article about our office’s work at Hing Hay Park in the November issue of LAM (“Found in Translation”), I was surprised to find that none of my women colleagues were quoted despite the principal in charge, project manager, and landscape architect all being women.Having just returned from an intellectually invigorating ASLA conference in Philadelphia, where issues of racial and gender representation were discussed prominently, it was eye-opening to realize that the phenomenon of silencing women’s design contributions continues to play out to this day, if inadvertently, as I am sure happened in this instance.While the male designers quoted in the article each had significant, if not pivotal, contributions to the design of Hing Hay Park, their contributions did not overshadow the equally significant contributions…

present park, future forest

An elevated walkway traces this community park, offering a unique vantage of South L.A.’s Vermont Knolls neighborhood. (HONGJOO KIM, ASLA)South Los Angeles is the last place a person might expect to find a tranquil walkway winding through the canopy of a mixed evergreen and deciduous forest. But 10 or 12 years from now, when the pines and redbud trees of Vermont Miracle Park have grown up past the metal railings of its 11-foot-high elevated walkway, residents of Vermont Knolls will have the chance to disappear into nature—if only for a few minutes.Occupying just 10,500 square feet, Vermont Miracle Park was designed by Hongjoo Kim Landscape Architects and developed by the Los Angeles Neighborhood Land Trust (LANLT), a nonprofit organization formed in part by then-city council member Eric Garcetti, Honorary ASLA,…

oberlander strikes again

Tropical plants invoke native Canadian landscapes at the National Gallery of Canada in Ottawa. (ENNS GAUTHIER LANDSCAPE ARCHITECTS)The National Gallery of Canada, a chiseled glass-and-concrete cathedral to the arts that rests on a bluff above the Ottawa River in the nation’s capital, is one of the architect Moshe Safdie’s most celebrated designs. And its half-wild garden of lichen, stone, and contorted pines is a must-see for acolytes of Cornelia Hahn Oberlander, FASLA, Canada’s most celebrated landscape architect. When the doors first opened in 1988, patrons were welcomed into a 1,855-square-foot interior courtyard designed by Oberlander, planted with fig trees and bromeliads arranged on a crisp, diagonal grid.The design of the courtyard garden was explicitly modernist and monastic—the courtyard serves as the foyer for a historic chapel that has been reconstructed…

design, build—and let build

LEGENDBEAVER IMPACT ZONELIMIT OF CONSTRUCTED WETLANDSAs public support for trapping has waned, beavers are making a comeback in urban waterways around the country. In Seattle, they are now said to be found in every suitable stream and water body, and some project designers now see them as partners in wetland restoration rather than nuisances. They say the benefits beavers bring to an ecosystem outweigh the challenges, and point out that working with them is far less expensive—and more humane—than trapping.“Beavers construct wetlands that hold back and store water, allowing for groundwater recharge and pollution sequestration, and increasing biodiversity,” says Ben Dittbrenner, the aquatic ecologist and executive director of Beavers Northwest. “We do the same thing for hundreds of thousands of dollars, but they do it for free.” This past October,…
