LAF Case Study Investigation (CSI): Design Firms Needed

This summer LAF kicks off Case Study Investigation (CSI), a unique research collaboration among select practitioners, LAF Research Fellows, and student research assistants to produce new Landscape Performance Series Case Study Briefs.

csi-graphic-v2To support firms in documenting high-performing landscape projects, LAF is awarding Research Fellowships to leading faculty and will match firms with student-faculty teams. During the Summer 2011 under the guidance of an LAF Research Fellow, research assistants will work with firm project leaders to produce Case Study Briefs by quantifying economic, social and environmental benefits, collecting post-occupancy data, and compiling methodologies.

Design Firms are needed for participation.

If you have 3-5 exemplary built projects with quantified or quantifiable landscape benefits and can commit to work with an LAF student research assistant, please return the Proposal Form by April 18 to to be considered for the program.

Upon selection, we will pair your firm with a faculty-student team and work with you to set objectives and a schedule for the initiative. The faculty-student team may identify topical performance benefits or project conditions for additional, published research.

Your documented work is critically needed by designers, policy-makers, advocates, and other professionals both inside and outside the profession who are working toward sustainability and affecting change. Inclusion in the Landscape Performance Series shows your thought leadership to a world-wide audience, as the LPS becomes the go-to place for resources to quantify benefits and make the case for sustainable landscape solutions.
