July 23rd, 12:00 noon
Please join LAIGW for a presentation on green infrastructure. Ryan Bouma, Principal, AECOM, will explore how the “state of the art” in urban green infrastructure has changed over the last decade and discuss its growing role in enhanced health and placemaking. The Yards redevelopment will be used as a case study.
The meeting will take place via Zoom.
Mr. Bouma leads the AECOM Urbanism + Planning practice along the east coast and as a landscape architect and urban designer leads public realm design efforts around the globe. His multi-disciplinary work ranges from resilient riverfront park design in Ningbo, China, to West Philadelphia’s newest Schuylkill waterfront to the high-performance landscape infrastructure of The Yards in Washington DC. These projects seek to simultaneously interpret history, enhance ecology, promote equitable access and support community resilience.
