LPS Resources are Growing with the Help of Submitters, Research Assistants...and You!

Have you checked out the Landscape Performance Series lately? Since the September launch, we’ve added new Case Studies, Factoids, Tools and Scholarly Works. New Case Study Briefs include contributions from Peter Walker and Partners, the American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA), and Mithun.

Katie Jenkins and Erica Thatcher, both MLA students at the University of Virginia, are working with professor Kristina Hill to identify new sources for LPS content. Katie has been combing the university databases to seek out factoids from published research and build our collection of student theses and dissertations related to landscape performance. Erica has compiled research on landscape benefits related to soil health and is working to produce a Case Study Brief on the Dell at UVA.

Kent Milson, a Masters of Urban Planning student at Texas A&M, is working with Department Head Forster Ndubisi to identify online calculators and uva-raericaUVA third-year MLA student Erica Thatchertools that can be used to quantify the landscape performance benefits of projects.

You, too, can contribute by sending us any leads on Tools, Factoids, and Scholarly Works. Or showcase your good work by submitting a case study to our growing database of exemplary built projects.

The deadline to submit for the upcoming round of review and publication is Tues, Nov 30. The next call won’t be until April 2011, so submit your case study today!
