Katherine Orff MLA ’97 has published the book Toward an Urban Ecology, an extended case study of her firm SCAPE, a the New York-based landscape architecture and urban design studio that combines the efforts of designers, scientists, policy-makers, and communities to effect change. The book shows in detail how they construct narratives of projects, what kinds of questions they ask, and how they’ve engaged in a constellation of sites and issues in a way that is useful to inspire the next generation of landscape design practitioners and activists.
