About the Superstudio
The Green New Deal Superstudio is a joint initiative of the Landscape Architecture Foundation (LAF) in association with the McHarg Center for Urbanism and Ecology, the Center for Resilient Cities and Landscapes, the American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA), and the Council of Educators in Landscape Architecture .
This historic year-long, national event is open to all design schools and professional practices or other design and planning related organizations across the United States who will all simultaneously participate in studios that translate the core goals of the Green New Deal—decarbonization, justice, and jobs—into design and planning projects for their respective regions. What these projects are, where they are, and how they manifest the ethos of the Green New Deal are at the discretion of each studio.
The Superstudio connects policy to spatial planning and design with regional and local specificity, and these regionally-based concepts and dialogue produced through the Superstudio will be catalogued as part of a curated collection to form a national vision for the Green New Deal. The ideas and discussions that emerge from the Superstudio will inform the Landscape Architecture Foundation’s next summit in October 2021, which will convene designers for a national conversation on policy and design to inform and catalyze future action.
