Projects, Firms Selected for 2015 CSI Program

LAF has selected 18 high-performing landscape projects for its 2015 Case Study Investigation (CSI) program. CSI is a unique research collaboration that matches LAF-funded faculty-student research teams with leading design practitioners to document the benefits of exemplary landscape projects.

Participants from each firm will work with the 2015 Research Fellows to evaluate the environmental, social, and economic performance of the selected projects. The resulting Case Study Briefs are published to LAF’s award-winning Landscape Performance Series database of over 100 projects.

The 2015 projects will add unrepresented geographies — namely South Dakota, Kentucky, North Carolina, and Saudi Arabia — to the Landscape Performance Series. While many are civic projects of national or regional significance, the list also includes university campus enhancements, a catalytic right-of-way reconstruction, part of the redevelopment of a former Naval Air Station, and the rehabilitation of a 120-km river corridor.

The 2015 CSI program kicks off in March and runs through early August. The resulting Case Study Briefs from these participating firms and projects will be published in the fall:
