Design Rendering for Urban Compost Use in Apartment Building Landscaping and Construction

Santa Monica, California

Design Disciplines Needed
Landscape Architecture

Desired Services
Global Green is evaluating opportunities for increased compost use in urban areas. We'd like to do a few pilots with landscapers, property managers, community organizations and other stakeholders to show what is possible. As a part of this, we're seeking help from a professional landscape architect to help us illustrate one or more of the items below: a) different scenarios for urban compost use including "topsoil manufacturing" for on-site construction projects b) site specific strategies. This will involve going to sites in the LA metro area with the Global Green team and following up with a design rendering. The renderings will both be used to inform site specific strategies, and more broadly as an educational tool for how compost can be used in urban areas.

Project Description

Global Green is evaluating opportunities for increased compost use in urban areas. We'd like to do a few pilots with landscapers, property managers, community organizations and other stakeholders to show what is possible.

As a part of this, we're seeking help from a professional landscape architect to help us illustrate one or more of the items below:
a) different scenarios for urban compost use including "topsoil manufacturing" for on-site construction projects
b) site specific strategies. This will involve going to sites in the LA metro area with the Global Green team and following up with a design rendering.

The renderings will both be used to inform site specific strategies, and more broadly as an educational tool for how compost can be used in urban areas.

Outcome

Our broader project goal is to create at least 3 different scenarios for urban consumption of compost published in a both graphic renderings and case studies. The models will include a combination of conceptual modeling and graphic rendering mixed with the on-the-ground experience of the projects that we're working with in apartment buildings. This template is created and disseminated by Global Green to landscape architects, builders, cities, and developers. Where it is a fit, we seek to have models recognized or explored as a part of best practices by real estate, city planning and/or civic organizations.
