ATLAS Lab Principal, Kimberly Garza, heads to the Midwest to keynote WI ASLA Conference. Kimberly will discuss the role of tactical urbanism in her lecture “Design NOW”. Traditional landscape architectural projects often carry lengthy timelines and lack meaningful community engagement opportunities. Moreover, landscape practitioners are typically not included during the engagement or construction phase of a project. In response, tactical urbanism and urban prototyping have emerged to directly engage communities and influence how public spaces should be used and defined. Kimberly discusses how to design and engage communities [NOW!] using tactical design methods from pop up parks to public art installations.
