Re-Wilding the City: Urban Landscapes as Integral Urban Infrastructure


The Living Edge and Dune Brothers Garden are recent urban landscape projects by the Landscape Architecture office Design Under Sky, led by Landscape Architect Adam E. Anderson. Each project presents a unique strategy in their initiation, constructability, site challenges and their response to urban and natural forces in the city. In this site tour, we will explore these projects and highlight interesting moments in the process and development, as well as new discoveries since their conception. The tour will start at the Living Edge, then follow to Dune Brothers Garden.
