The Importance of Threads & Fragments: Designing Urban Green Space(2 pm )
Event Sponsor: Southern Piedmont Chapter
Laurel Holtzapple, PLA, ASLA, Principal of Groundworks Studio, specializing in landscape architecture, urban design and public artwork will speak March 11 on design and inspiration for the neglected spaces, the spaces in between, and the environmentally degraded. We’ll view landscape projects starting with one of our favorites, Tuckaseegee 12. Many of the reclaimed spaces involve the integration of native plants, positioned among designs for humans in urban areas. Her imaginative landscapes of meaning are rooted in many nearby places including St, Martin’s, Freedom Walkway, Davidson Book Garden, Reid Park Art and other greenspaces.
