Landscape architects are increasingly envisioning a built environment that manages stormwater and provides other ecosystem services, that sustains itself without undue inputs, and that is resilient in the face of unpredictable weather events. The key to realizing these ambitious goals is a thorough understanding of ecology. Principles of Ecological Landscape Design, a new book from Island Press, digs into the science of ecology to elucidate key concepts for the design of landscapes that can perform at every level. At this NYC launch event, join author Travis Beck of the New York Botanical Garden for a conversation about the book and the growing importance of ecology in the practice of landscape architecture.
