Amanda Staerker: The Olmsted Legacy in Today’s Master Planned Communities

Things To Know

Olmsted planning principles like “Places for all” has stood the test of time and have become a natural part of the modern planning process. Carefully curated historic projects such as Riverside have set an example for today’s active lifestyles and business models across the country. Join Landscape Architect Amanda Staerker to take a look at how the neighborhoods and master-planned communities you live in are shaped through the use of public space, connection with nature, integrated trail systems, transportation, and more. Explore examples of modern amenities in the Olmsted language around the US. The presentation will “FLO” from town & community level to “lot” level, leaving guests with some Olmsted-inspired design tips & tricks that they can implement at home.
