Measuring Landscape Performance: Practical Steps & Resources to Conduct Performance Evaluations
In partnership with Missouri Botanical Garden, BiodiverseCity St. Louis, Academy of Science – St. Louis, and Missouri Community Forestry Council.
Drawing on six years of success, challenges, and lessons from the Landscape Architecture Foundation’s Landscape Performance Series and Case Study Investigation (CSI) program, this session presents a primer on evaluating the environmental, social, and economic performance of landscape projects. Learn about methods, tools, and key success factors to identify and quantify performance benefits, including how to choose the right metrics. The session also covers what designers need to consider, collect information on, and archive starting from day one to be able to measure landscape performance. Learn about practical steps and resources to start conducting your own performance evaluations.
