Cultural

In the United States, we are becoming culturally isolated from one another. We view the world through our car window shields, television screens and i-phones. Our urban fabric is formed of an anonymous grid of vehicles and garage doors with little opportunity given to consequential social interaction.

 

We ask, "does the design create opportunities for meaningful social exchange and learning?"

 

  

 

 

 

 

   Landscape architecture can be used to enlighten and educate society through the presentation of urban and historic trails as well as public art associated with open spaces and recreational opportunities.

   Open green space encourages social gathering and the potential for meaningful social interaction and exchange.

   Open green space can reduce social differences in a variety of ways.

   Open green space can reduce social isolation so often encouraged by our televisions and automobiles.
