As performance-driven landscapes are expected to contribute more directly, discretely, and financially, how do we confirm real-world effectiveness? This panel discusses systematic performance assessment—methods situated within a total project-commissioning model that enable designers to practice more creatively and assume more expansive roles. Learning Objectives - Understand the industry-accepted commissioning model and how it could apply to landscape design and construction. - Understand alternative approaches to evaluating landscape performance in complex landscapes. - Gather tools to convince your clients to support performance analysis and influence their decision making process. - Understand the critical importance of adaptive management based on real time monitoring data.
