I am big into spaces for children. I have worked with children for many years and love to find ways to help them explore, develop, and get a little closer to nature. They are our natural scientists. However, I am also studying storm water mitigation and its connections to green streets. Am working to find ways to combine the two interests.
Steps to realization: Designs for clients always include considerations of the watershed, and if there are children-their needs. I read EPA documents and guidelines, treatises, and landscape architecture books and journals. Of course field trips to exemplar sites, interactions with city officials… I find it all engaging study.
