WLAM

Updated on April 23rd 2015

This April, National Landscape Architecture Month becomes World Landscape Architecture Month, as we connect the world through designed spaces. WLAM celebrates the profession and introduces it to the next generation of landscape architects across the globe.

World Landscape Architecture Month will use social media to connect each ASLA chapter with a sister organization in a foreign country to collaborate, share ideas, and reach new audiences with social media.   The Indiana Chapter has been paired with South Korea.  To learn more about the connections Landscape Architects in Indiana share with those in South Korea, please see the following images below or these pdfs: Miran Day, Kangwon Lee, Christine Johnson

Additionally, each ASLA member is asked to take a wallet sized card with "Design By A Landscape Architect" on it to take pictures of it at designed spaces to share on social media. Use the hastags ‪#‎WLAM2015‬ and ‪#‎INASLA‬ to highlight our states efforts!

ASLA will showcase all of these efforts to create a national story about connecting students across the world collaborating ideas that promotes the landscape architecture profession.

INASLA In December Issue of Landscape Architect and Specifier News Magazine

Feature Project - KIB's Green Roof

The 13,000 square foot green roof is a research project. It was installed by a contractor called Rooftop Greenworks, using an Omni Ecosystems comprehensive system. Rooftop Greenworks is collaborating with Southern Illinois University-Edwardsville to understand the impact of this green roof compared to standard sedum green roofs; and, also on our site, to the white membrane roof that is already designed to reduce cooling needs at KIB. We have three months of data demonstrating significant temperature reductions on the roof where it is vegetated. KIB will be tracking over the next 14 months utility use and bills to see if there are reduced needs for energy; and reduced energy costs, associated with the installation.

CHA Companies, a national engineering firm based in Albany, and with offices here in Indianapolis has modeled the impact of the green roof and stormwater runoff, which contributes to poor water quality. The data is showing a 33% gain in stormwater runoff mitigation at KIB’s sustainable site. In total, nearly 60% of stormwater that falls on KIB’s site is being kept out of the city’s combined sewer system, through a variety of strategies including pervious pavement, rain gardens, and a cistern.

The green roof today is covered with plants, thick only a few months after installation. The medium used for the planting is lightweight and high in nitrogen and organic material. The lightweight media likely enables more building owners to consider green roofs.

The green roof is providing sustenance to bees, butterflies and birds, contributing to places supporting biodiversity. KIB and Rooftop Greenworks have planted a mix that is 85% native, short stature prairie, supporting KIB’s mission of helping people and nature thrive in the city. This is an unusual rooftop planting; often roofs are planted with sedum, which is less beneficial to insects and birds.
