Green for the Greater Good's Collaboration with UD Students Continues!
Last spring, Green for the Greater Good established a partnership with faculty from the University of Delaware's Living Lab Research Group in the Biden School of Public Policy and Administration to provide independent research and facilitate community visioning activities for the future use of the Rodney Reservoir site, including last June's Community Design Charrette.
This fall, Professor Anna Wik, RLA, ASLA, has been working with students in her Landscape Architecture Urban Design Studio to further analyze the site, reach out into the surrounding community, and develop creative designs for the future Rodney Reservoir Park.
Green for the Greater Good has been facilitating partnerships and engaging with these amazing students and teacher and their awesome designs all semester. Contact us if you are interested in attending some of their semester's end events in Newark!
Analyzing the Rodney Reservoir's Context
Student designers worked in teams to analyze and inventory the natural systems, urban context, history, land use, and patterns of movement in and around the site.
Individual Rodney Reservoir Site Designs
The culminating project of their work in the Urban Design Studio course is a Rodney Reservoir site design that includes connecting elements proposed for implementation in the community beyond the site. Students developed their designs through an iterative process with the feedback of their professor, other LA faculty, professional landscape designers and community members at one quarter, one half and three quarter review points.
