PPD Distinguished Fellow Randal Jackson, a Landscape Architect and President and Principal at PlaceWorks hosted a group of MURP students at PlaceWorks on February 23, 2017.
After an office tour, Jackson and his associates at PlaceWorks conducted a design charette – a hands-on project exercise based on a standard planning scenario. The students used information about a city’s plan to brainstorm possible site uses and plans. In teams, they developed a concept and presented it over a “working lunch”.
Many thanks to Randy Jackson and PlaceWorks for providing this opportunity, and to MURP student Jonathan Lightfoot for coordinating the site visit with Jackson
