When designers work internationally and across cultures, understanding the people and environmental contexts of the project are especially critical. This panel will explore a variety of ways that academic and scientific research informs, shapes and improves landscape architectural design. The participants, from Australia, Italy, Spain and Iran, are studying the gradual impact of climate change on natural hazards, preserving indigenous methods of adaptations, analyzing the processes at work in urban forests, sustainable approaches to design and construction, biodigesters, water conservation. Collectively, we will discuss how research and inquiry influence innovation in international landscape architectural practice.
