LDA 141 – Community Participation & Design

Program in Sustainable Environmental Design & in Landscape Architecture, University of California, Davis

Each winter quarter, our class of 40-50 students from Sustainable Environmental Design and Landscape Architecture set out to learn how to better design together with communities. Using Design as Democracy as our framework, we walked through a participatory design process, working with community partners to advance their own design goals.
