What you will hear:
Join us on February 20th from 2-4 PM in the first floor open space of Gould Hall on the University of Washington’s campus to learn about “GSI for Healthier Public Open Spaces”. Hear from students involved in the UW Landscape Architecture Scan | Design Master Studio and their work developing design ideas and typologies to inspire retrofits of streets and urban spaces that employ natural processes to create a more livable district, while solving the area’s stormwater issues and future City water and wastewater demands. Take a look at their designs that are inspired by their experiences traveling abroad to Copenhagen and Malmo. We will also hear from the Capitol Hill EcoDistrict and their ongoing project to improve public space and the experience of all who visit the Capitol Hill neighborhood. Finally, hear from capstone students at the Evan’s School who are working with King County’s DNRP on a GSI master plan for White Center, and exploring GSI messaging to find out what is working and what is falling flat in the public eye.
