Nicolas Morin, Barker LA – Community-Based Design:  Barton St. P-Patch and more

4:30-5:30pm | Gould 322

For Nicolas Morin, one of the joys of practicing landscape architecture is the opportunity to collaborate with communities. Whether a parklet, pocket park, or p-patch, the process is unpredictable, rich with unusual challenges, pushes creative problem solving, and is a wonderful way to connect with everyday champions. Helping a community own a design by listening carefully to their needs, building consensus, and identifying partnerships throughout the process can offer surprising rewards and results.
