The Power of 3D Modeling  

Join us on February 14 at 1:00 p.m. ET to witness the power and efficiencies gained by 3D modeling in landscape-specific BIM software and gain an understanding of how to build various features found on a proposed site while using a combination of site planning tools and commonly used 3D modeling processes. Communication is essential for the success of any project, and the mention of “revisions” shouldn’t cause fear of going over budget.

Visualizations are an integral facet of landscape design. Everyone has a different approach, from continuing to embrace the more time-intensive hand-drawn methods, while others utilize CAD paired with 3D modeling and image-editing technology. Although each of these are successful to some degree, revisions are inevitable, and the time it takes to reconstruct these illustrations in multiple softwares can be greatly reduced by fine-tuning the design in a single application.

Landscape Performance to Demonstrate Impact: Sustainable Campus Landscapes - 1.0 PDH (LA CES/HSW)  

Understanding the environmental, social and economic benefits of sustainable landscapes is essential for designers, developers, investors, and policymakers who influence land development and want better results. This session introduces and explores the concept of landscape performance and why it is critical to achieving sustainability and reaching key decision-makers, with a particular focus on examples from sustainable campuses in the United States. The Landscape Architecture Foundation will present an overview of the Landscape Performance Series, an online, interactive set of resources to help evaluate performance, show value and make the case for sustainable landscape solutions. Learn how the Case Study Briefs, Benefits Toolkit, Fast Facts, and more can be used to evaluate and demonstrate the impact of sustainable campus landscapes and how you can be part of this growing online resource.
