Penn Landscape Travel Studios

Penn’s landscape studios travelled around the globe! This semester Penn landscape students travelled to Chicago, New Mexico, India and Chile. In Chicago students focused their attention on Goose Island and its future as an IT hub. In New Mexico the design question is how to improve the living conditions of Native American communities in arid conditions. In India students explored the Western Ghats, one of the most biodiverse places on earth and in Valparaiso, Chile they worked on matters of urban growth in a volatile landscape.
