Northampton, MA
Type: Masterplanning,  Community engagement
Client: Smith College
Project work while employed at MNLA as a landscape designer.

A vision for a campus landscape responding to a community engagement process that revealed changes in how students, faculty and stuff view the natural environment. The Master Plan will guide the evolution of Smith’s outdoor campus landscape to meet current and future challenges while manifesting the College’s values, educational goals and strategic priorities.

The engagement process provided opportunities for the Smith community to refelct on their changing relationship with the natural world and readiness for campus transformation in the face of climate change through robust on-campus engagement sessions, interactive student projects, and Groundswell Magazine, an innovative online resource.
