FS 1
Novel Design-Build Opportunities with GPS-Guided Earth Moving Equipment
Times 8:00 am-5:00 pm
Introductory

The iterative design cycle typically experiences a rapid slow-down once construction drawings are handed off to a contractor. Rarely does the landscape architect get to participate in design changes that are made on the construction site. Automated construction technology—GPS-guided bulldozers in this case—offers opportunities to change this situation. Find out how the precision, speed, flexibility, and economic benefits of GPS-guided bulldozers can offer new directions for design-build practices.

Caroline Y. Westort, PhD, University of Virginia, School of Architecture; Joe McNamara, Spectra IS; Stephen Ervin, ASLA, Harvard University.

$90 per person with Early Bird registration; $100 thereafter. Includes transportation, morning break, boxed lunch, and handouts.

FS 2
The Documentation and Conservation Plan for the Fountain Garden and Marine Garden at Vizcaya
8:30 am-5:00 pm
Intermediate

Explore two different attitudes towards creating a garden in the American tropics. We’ll tour two wonderful gardens, including Vizcaya, the winter estate of James Deering, and the Charles Deering Estate, his brother’s house and hammock to the south. Vizcaya is arguably one of the finest examples of formal garden design in the country. Participants will get an introduction to this national historic landmark and learn the research and documentation techniques for its conservation. A general history of the site will be followed by an in-depth analysis of two representative smaller gardens within the site.

Rocco J. Ceo, University of Miami.

Participants will visit several strategic areas in the Everglades to learn more about the ecosystem and the importance of restoration.
