The American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA) will host an Aug. 31 panel of landscape architects via Facebook Live to discuss the security design of public places. In view of recent tragic events in Charlottesville, Barcelona and London, the panel will examine the urgent need to ensure the public’s safety on public, government and institutional properties. Key design goals and challenges will also be addressed from various angles, with a special focus on how to provide an adequate balance between addressing threats and the beauty of the public realm.
