Over 20 design firms and 30 projects have been selected for LAF’s 2012 Case Study Investigation (CSI) program. This unique research collaboration matches LAF-funded faculty-student research teams with leading practitioners to document the benefits of exemplary high-performing landscape projects as Landscape Performance Series Case Study Briefs.
Participating firms were selected based on the the quality of projects submitted, potential to produce comprehensive quantified benefits, availability of baseline information, and commitment to the research collaboration. Practitioners provide the background information and narrative for projects, help identify potential performance benefits and information to quantify them, and provide the faculty-student research teams with access to key project personnel, photos, documents, clients, and other stakeholders.
The collaborations are now underway — look for updates throughout the summer and new Case Study Briefs in the fall from these participating firms and projects:
