Last week in the UW/LA advanced planting design seminar, instructor Richard Hartlage led the class on a field trip around the former wetland that is now the U-Village.

The class learned about the history of the shopping center’s design, plus some of the challenges and constraints that come with design in an urban outdoor mall.

How can storytelling through design help to fuel the social capital important to community resilience? How can it support the infrastructural and ecological capital critical to safe and robust landscapes? Last winter, 15 UW landscape architects, architects and urban planners explored these questions in a graduate design studio in Christchurch, NZ.

In Christchurch’s recovery from devastating earthquakes in 2010/2011, and its process to reimagine and rebuild for a resilient future, the community recognized that the Ōtākaro Avon River Corridor is a key resource ecologically, culturally, and recreationally. Earthquake impacts to the lands adjoining the river include soil liquefaction, significant structural damage and land subsidence that render the area vulnerable to impending sea level rise and resulted in removal of over 8000 homes on over 600 hectares of land.

In a regeneration plan, @regenerate_chch suggested use of the Ōtākaro Avon Corridor as a green spine traversed by a 12 km city-to-sea cultural trail that would provide insights into the social, cultural and environmental heritage of this land. After engaging site analysis and local workshops, students proposed a network of experiences surrounding 4 themes: Mahinga Kai: Food + Ecology; Tākaro: River of Play; Memory, Connection + Being; and Waikākāriki Futures. #WASLA Merit 2019

We support the American Society of Landscape Architects call for all governments convened at the 2019 Climate Action Summit to adopt national policies that incentivize investment in nature-based solutions to help communities adapt to the impacts of the climate crisis, with a greater focus on the disproportionate impacts faced by vulnerable and underserved communities.
