This coming Wednesday, Professor Joan Nassauer will discuss, "The role of
landscape scenario design in developing landscape indicators."
Landscape indicators are needed to measure changes in the appearance of
landscape that might be effected by policy. To anticipate the effects of
policy, landscape scenarios that imagine a future different from the past

Joan Iverson Nassauer, FASLA, is Professor of Landscape Architecture in
School of Natural Resources and Environment at the University of Michigan
Ann Arbor, Michigan. Her work seeks to understand what people value about
appearance of landscapes and to use their values as a means of introducing
ecological benefits by design. Recent projects address urban landscape
- retrofitting the city to improve ecological health in residential
neighborhoods and in brownfield redevelopment, ecological alternatives to
sprawl, and methods for generating alternative future landscapes.
