Landscape Architecture Students complete work in Belair-Edison

Last year, the Morgan student chapter for the American Society of Landscape Architecture (SASLA) worked with the Belair-Edison neighborhood to complete conceptual designs for renovated residences and vacant lots.

St. Ambrose Housing Aid Center, a non-profit housing provider, sponsored a student charrette for front yard designs with residents in the community to supplement newly renovated homes in Belair-Edison. The chosen concepts revolved around a simple modular design that could be implemented at any phase of a renovation. In addition to the modular design, the goal was to keep costs and maintenance low.

Members of SASLA were able to attend the unveiling other St. Ambrose homes with Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake.

In addition to the residential projects in Belair-Edison, SASLA members, Ali Salmian, Caitlin Cunningham, Brad Deise, and Mason Campbell, worked with Lots Alive, a non-profit that supports the creation of temporary public art projects on vacant lots in Baltimore City, on conceptual designs for two lots in the neighborhood, a community dog park and reading park.

The next phase for the vacant lots is detailed selection of planting and pricing.

Congratulations for the work of SASLA. Keep it up!
