Green Landscape Journal: Blog by the Team Working on a Sustainable Design for the U.S. Mission Grounds
August 12, 2010

Nine U.S. landscape architecture students are spending the first two weeks of August studying the grounds surrounding the U.S. Mission to the United Nations in Geneva and drafting a sustainable landscape design that can be phased in over five years. The students will work alongside three landscape architecture students from a leading Swiss landscape design institute, and under the guidance of three American landscape architecture educators, to deliver a comprehensive, sustainable landscape design that improves the landscape’s performance while also demonstrating American expertise.

You can follow the team’s work and their discovery of Geneva through the “Green Landscape Journal” they have been writing on our Green-Mission.info website.
