A simultaneous movement is underway in both landscape architecture and ecology to reframe the relationship of science to practice. Designed experiments provide an approach to integrate research experiments into design projects to refine our understanding of sustainability and resilience, fill knowledge gaps, and frame issues of uncertainty. Learning Objectives - Apply scientific knowledge and scientific assessments as a driver of the design, operations and maintenance. - Re-conceptualize experiments from research tools used to obtain results addressing hypotheses, to a multifunctional landscape. - Learn how scientific research can inform shaping strategies for urban vegetation and hydrology. - Learn about effective monitoring strategies to support designed landscapes and inform “Sustainable Sites”.
