Velikov presents new materials at the 2013 American Society of Landscape Architects Annual Meeting in Boston

Assistant Professor Kathy Velikov recently presented current research and teaching at the 2013 American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA) Annual Meeting in Boston on Monday, November 18th.

The discussion panel, entitled "Integrating New Materials into Landscape Design Systems" discussed "the emergence of material research laboratories in design schools anticipates a future of research-conscious practitioners. This exposure to theoretical and empirical data collection foretells collaborative materials and systems development alongside scientists and industrial manufacturers, which will be crucial to solving economic, ecological, and social challenges."

Other session speakers were Anna Dyson of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Billie Faircloth of Kieran Timberlake Architects and Liat Margolis of the University of Toronto.
