methods to make the case for the return on investment for well-designed outdoor spaces measured in terms of community, identity, well-being,
environment, and dollars spent. I am focused
on driving innovation with new types of scalable
solutions that go beyond the standard litter
bin, bike rack, and bench, to help people enjoy
great outdoor experiences. The outdoors starts
only a half-inch outside the door, so we need
new ideas for spaces adjacent to buildings. We
also need to integrate technology in public
spaces, but in ways that respect the special
qualities of the environment.
I am excited by the work and believe that,
in collaboration with landscape architects
and other design professionals, all of us in the
site-furniture industry can elevate awareness
and promote greater investment in outdoor
spaces that create memory and meaning. We can
make a real difference in the urban landscape
that is our future.
