Susannah Drake, the Principal of dlandstudio recently gave a lecture at the D-Crit (Design Criticism Department), School of Visual Arts in New York.

“In the wake of Hurricane Sandy, the topics of sea level rise and storm surge have never been so relevant. Susannah Drake, the Principal of dlandstudio, will discuss how landscape architecture and good environmental design can create new infrastructure systems that will result in more resilient cities and improved biodiversity. Drake will also argue how data visualization can improve understanding about the financial incentives of good environmental design, and help untangle the bureaucratic web surrounding complex jurisdictional environments.” Video Description Excerpt
