LTrainCharette

Participants from both design and non-design fields are invited to this program that asks how unforeseen design solutions can facilitate easier routes during service shutdowns.

Have an idea? There is no entry fee to enter. Form an interdisciplinary team of at least two people and send us your 150-word concept by midnight EDT on June 9.

Note from the Editor: Why is this posted on a landscape architecture blog? Because landscape architects look at problems at a macro scale and thought that a landscape architect teamed with an engineer, architect or other non-design discipline could create a disruptive solution. It will be interesting to see everyone’s ideas.
