Farnum Garden at RISD

2017-18

Community Garden Design

Partners: Sophia Glasser-Kerr, Alice Langlois, Peter Lokken

This project with an interdisciplinary group aims to create a multifunctional, sustainable green space for the RISD campus and College Hill neighborhood that supports an environmentally-conscious ethic, augments biodiversity, and enhances our relationship with nature in an urban setting.

During the planning of initial designs, concepts, and principles of the greenhouse project, community engagement was crucial. By having individual meetings, producing surveys, and hosting a charrette, we were able to involve RISD students and faculty, as well as members of the surrounding College Hill community.
