This Week In Landscape | 21 April 2013

Landscape Architecture in the Chinese context | Marc Deuschle | ArchitectureAU
“It was only recently that landscape architecture became a stand-alone degree in China, and the first graduates only began to emerge in the early 2000s. Together with returned foreign-taught practitioners they are now establishing themselves in both locally owned and foreign-owned design offices.”

Three Keys to creating Great ‘Good Places’ | Carl Meyer | Perkins+Will Blog
“As the world continues to urbanize, the importance of design and the idea of “place” will become more and more important to the livability of cities.”

Cultural Fluency: Intersections of Art and Urbanism | Jonathan Tarleton | Urban Omnibus
“The exhibited projects all have a performative or public quality, which a display in the glowing white box of the gallery fails to fully capture.”

100 Urban Interventions in 1 Day | Joe Peach | This Big City
“…each putting in place the projects and changes they want to see in their city all on the same day? That’s the goal of 100en1día (100 in 1 day) – a social movement originating from Bogotá, Colombia, which aims to inspire citizen driven change on a significant scale, transforming cities over a 24 hour period.”

Garden designs that give back | Bill Lahay | Miami Herald
“Gardens grow our food, give us shade, calm frazzled nerves and nudge us toward the deep solace that a quiet connection with the natural world can provide.”

Keeping it green during drought | Jim Beal | My San Antonio
“The same principles that apply to large-scale projects also cover the work weekend gardeners do on their lawns, just on a different scale.”

Herbs can spice up your landscape design | Scott Hininger | Sheridan Press
“Ounce for ounce, many herbs used to flavor our foods have more antioxidant power than berries, fruits, and vegetables, according to Agricultural Research Service study.”

A Pox on Your Flowers | Anne Raver | NY Times
“A mysterious strain of downy mildew has been killing one of the home gardener’s favorite annual flowers, Impatiens walleriana, up and down the East and West Coasts, in the Midwest, Texas and Ontario.”
