Projects, Firms Announced for 2017 CSI Program
LAF has selected 13 high-performing landscape projects for the 2017 Case Study Investigation (CSI) program. CSI is a unique research collaboration that matches LAF-funded faculty-student research teams with design practitioners to document the benefits of exemplary landscape projects.
Participants from each firm will serve as liaisons and work with the 2017 CSI Research Fellows to evaluate and quantify the environmental, social, and economic performance of the selected projects. The resulting Case Study Briefs are published in LAF’s award-winning Landscape Performance Series database of over 100 projects.
With projects spanning three continents, 2017 CSI promises to be an engaging experience with marked additions to the Landscape Performance Series. Projects this year include a pedestrian trail that connects two oceanside cities, a former ballast quarry, three healthcare facilities, a master planned community, two reclaimed elevated rail lines, and more.
The 2017 CSI program kicks off in February and runs through early August. The resulting Case Study Briefs from these participating firms and projects will be published in the fall:
