Whether we are crafting funding strategies for urban parks or developing resilience plans for coastal cities, HR&A works with a wide range of clients and communities to provide implementable solutions that protect and enhance the built environment. This November, Vice-Chairman Candace Damon and Senior Principal Jamie Torres Springer will moderate panels at the American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA) 2015 Annual Conference in Chicago, where they will discuss these topics with diverse groups of panelists.


On Sunday, November 8th Jamie Torres Springer will moderate a panel titled: Landscape Architecture and Design Post-Sandy: New Paradigms of Resilience. This panel will be comprised of planners and landscape architects who will discuss principles of landscape design and planning as they relate to disaster recovery and resilience. Jamie leads HR&A’s resilience practice and specializes in creative planning, financing, and implementation strategies supporting urban growth and revitalization.


On Monday, November 9th Candace Damon will moderate a panel titled: Public Parks and Private Partners: United they Stand?. She will be joined by park operators, consultants, and advocates to explore and debate the P3 role in park funding, policy, and operations, and what the implications are for designers. Candace is a leader in the creation of sustainable urban redevelopment strategies for cities across North America and spearheads HR&A’s Parks and Open Space practice.


We look forward to sharing lessons from our projects and hope to foster a lively discussion among ASLA attendees. We hope that you can join us!
