#ImmersiveEngagementPractices #Co-Design
To celebrate the Landscape Institute’s 90th Anniversary, the Landscape Institute SouthWest and Bristol Architecture Centre are running 3 workshops on Co-Design. MELA will lead the first workshop on Immersive Engagement Practices. Come along if you are in the Bristol area on 23rd May 2019 3.30-6.00pm.

Participatory design gives communities and clients agency in the design of their neighbourhoods and workspaces. This skill is in high demand, but not commonly or formally taught in the landscape, urban design and planning courses, and rarely found at a high quality in commercial businesses and public sector.

The ‘State of Landscape’ report revealed that the top skills required from the landscape architecture profession were; community and stakeholder engagement (50% profession requires this), communication and presentation (65% requirement), collaborative partnerships (53% profession requires this), and problem solving (65% of landscape architects require these skills). This series of events seeks to upskills landscape and urban design professionals in this critical skills gap.
