Rob Kuper Presents: Stamps, Seasons, Stimuli, Scales, and Stats: Advancements in Landscape Preference

Title: Stamps, Seasons, Stimuli, Scales, and Stats: Advancements in Landscape Preference

Bio: Rob Kuper is an aspiring umbraphile, registered landscape architect in Pennsylvania, and associate professor of landscape architecture at Temple University. After receiving a BS in Environmental Design and an MLA from Auburn University, he practiced landscape architecture in Boston and, after a stint walking across Nebraska, Phoenix, Arizona.Rob's research on landscape preference has been published in Landscape Journal, HortTechnology,andLandscape and Urban Planning.

Lecture summary: Does evidence support the prospect-refuge theory? Do people like landscapes in one season more than others? Can one design a landscape that people will prefer? In an attempt to answer these and other questions, Rob will summarize his attempts to find reliable and valid objective measures of criteria that have been used to predict how much people like a setting, for whatever reason, within the context of seasonally induced visual changes to plants.

A Landscape Restoration Tale of Weeds, Wildlife, Waste, & Renewal | Jenna Webster

How do you turn around a weed-infested grassland when many of the necessary steps conflict with imperiled bird species already usingthat grassland? Learn how a unique restoration plan for a 100-acre grassland atop a capped landfill negotiated this challenge by synthesizing crowdsourced data, scientific research, field experience, and an interpretative vision steeped in site history.

Jenna Webster is a designer with Larry Weaner Landscape Associates, where she works on landscape master plans for residential and public projects. She also plays a key role in developing programming for the New Directions in the American Landscape conference series. She holds a B.A. and M.Ed from Harvard University and a masters from the Conway School, a graduate program in sustainable landscape planning and design. Prior to entering the design field, she worked in art museums and community non-profits.

Co-sponsored by the LA-Hort Department, AED, Tyler School of Art and the Temple University General Activities Fund (GAF) Landscape Architecture CEU’s available.

Dennis McGlade, FASLA: Planting Over Structure

Dennis McGlade has been a part of OLIN nearly since its inception, joining the studio in 1978 and becoming a partner in 1996. A highly regarded professional in the field of design and horticulture, his noted works include the design of the J. Paul Getty Center and Fran and Ray Stark Sculpture Garden in Los Angeles, California; Bishopsgate and Canary Wharf in London, UK and Midway Plaisance in Chicago, Illinois. Dennis earned a Bachelor of Landscape Architecture at the University of Illinois and went on to receive his Master of Landscape Architecture at the University of Pennsylvania, where he studied under renowned landscape architect Ian McHarg. He has served in various teaching positions at the University of Pennsylvania and Temple University. Dennis will talk about how the Mid Atlantic region continues to grow and get even more urbanized, creative opportunities must be found to maintain and expand natural habitats, mitigate storm water run off, and provide social open spaces for the growing population.   The design of  exterior spaces over structure is one opportunity to find solutions for these and the numerous other environmental issues raise by continued densification of our cities and inner ring suburbs.

Landscape Performance - Evaluating the Environmental, Economic and Social Benefits of Built Landscapes

"Empirical evidence is an important criterion for shaping the physical environment and for underpinning design decisions. This presentation describes the background of landscape performance, a research initiative that evaluates environmental, economic and social benefits of built landscapes. Tools for measuring performance and case studies conducted by the author and Temple Landscape Architecture students will be presented."

Dr. Mary Myers is an avid proponent of using science as a basis for design. She spearheaded development of the Temple University Master of Landscape Architecture program with a concentration in Ecological Landscape Restoration.

Author of Andrea Cochran: Landscapes (2009), and co-author of the anthology Sustainable Design (2010) Dr. Mary Myers is a registered landscape architect whose years in practice inform her teaching, research and outreach. She currently serves on the national Landscape Architecture Accreditation Board, which oversees accreditation of landscape architecture degree programs in the United States. Her writing has been published in Landscape Architecture Magazine, Landscape Journal, Public Roads and other journals.
