Symposium - Transforming Outdoor Space workshop

  • Education Building 248 Ridgewood Avenue Charlotte, NC 28209 (map)

How do you take the lessons learned and achievements reached in a large scale urban landscape project and apply them to the everyday design work on a smaller scale, such as local green space, neighborhood planning, or even your own backyard.

Trained architect and project manager for multiple urban landscape endeavors, Abby Bristow leads this practical workshop on the design work, processes, and appropriate techniques. Participants will walk away not only with the knowledge and experiences shared by Abby, but a set of planning documents to accommodate landscape design projects of varying sizes.
