The Landscape Architecture Foundation’s Case Study Investigation (CSI) program matches LAF-funded student-faculty research teams with leading practitioners to document the benefits of exemplary high-performing landscape projects. Teams develop methods to quantify environmental, economic and social benefits and produce Case Study Briefs for the Landscape Performance Series.
LAF is now accepting applications for the 2015 CSI Program, which will run March - August 2015.
Participating firms apply with specific projects and are selected based on the quality of the project, availability of information to document performance, and commitment to participate in the CSI process. Research Fellows are select faculty members with demonstrated interest or expertise in quantifying landscape benefits. Fellows receive funding to support a student research assistant. Research teams are matched with projects based on geographic proximity, relevant expertise, and any prior relationships.
The CSI program is highly collaborative with the goal of better integrating the innovative work being done by academia and professional practice to advance our knowledge of landscape performance.
