Workshop: Ecology & the Art of Regenerative Development

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Find out how to see the ecological roots of a place, and how they can enrich placemaking, planning and development.

Every place on Earth was shaping itself before humans even settled there. So when we attempt to trace the histories of our neighborhoods, cities and public spaces, the story shouldn't begin with human activities.

Drawing on data, historical records, legends, regional arts, and kitchen-table conversations, "Story of Place" is a methodology for discerning the timeless patterns that make each place unique. It derives its power from the ability to listen to the stories of geology and hydrology, flora and fauna, that in turn shaped the human stories that take place there.
