At her recent lecture, “Navigating the Art & Science of Landscape,” Mikyoung found an engaged and energetic audience at the Georgia Tech College of Design. As a guest speaker in the Douglas C. Allen Lecture series, Mikyoung spoke about the scientific research in both ecological and human resiliency that shapes her studio’s interest in human-centered design. She discussed how the practice of landscape architecture must view issues of stormwater management and rising sea levels as not just pressing environmental issues, but challenges that are completely intertwined with human health and well-being.
Based in the vibrant city of Atlanta, the Georgia Tech College of Design is embedded within a technological institution and emphasizes research-based design. Thanks to the Allen family for supporting landscape architecture and bringing such a lively discussion to the students of architecture and planning within this amazing school.
