A designer’s ability to succeed in the middle of this complexity can be greatly enhanced through careful examination of relevant ecological research and analysis. Join us at our two-day conference as highly accomplished ecologists and designers explore the synthesis of sophisticated analysis and creative design. Featured speakers include Frank Gilliam, Ph.D., professor of biological sciences at Marshall University in West Virginia, Patricia Drackett, Director, Crosby Arboretum in coastal Mississippi , Uli Lorimer, curator of Native Flora at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden and Frederick Steiner, Dean of the University of Pennsylvania’s School of Design.
