research + teaching + Events
The GLDL is still in its growth phase and it is an exciting time filled with critical discussion, developing partnerships, and projective possibilities. Below are some of the ways we have been having developing our work through public workshops, design seminars and studios, design competitions, and ongoing design projects.
CURRENT + Ongoing
Project at the Cloquet Forestry Center
LOCAL FIBERSHED DEER FENCING PROJECT
(a collaboration with the Keeler Lab +

WATER in FLUX WORKSHOP
EXPERIMENTAL FOREST PROPOSALS
DETROIT : Third Coast Studio
CORNELL URBAN DESIGN STUDIO
additional PRE-GLDL great lakes research + Teaching
The collaborators of the GLDL have spent years (if not decades!) working with issues related to changing landscapes within the great lakes basin. Find some examples of this work or links to this work below.
MARSHES, MUCK, AND A MONOCULTURE STUDIO
The Ohio State University, Knowlton School, Department of Landscape Architecture, MLA2+3, Fall 2014.
Instructor: Karen Lutsky
Assistant Instructor: Brett Kordenbrock
This MLA 2/MLA 3 studio had students research and draw the conditions of the Saginaw Bay on the eastern shore of Michigan. Saginaw Bay, a 1143 square mile Area of Concern, is the largest contiguous freshwater marsh in the country and now largely composed of a singular species Phragmites australis. After extensive research that included large group mapping exercises, students proposed a site and strategy for a Phragmites Research Center on coastal site near Bay City.
THIRD COAST STUDIO
Carleton University , Azrieli School of Architecture + Urbanism, MArch 3rd, Spring 2018.
Instructor: Ozayr Saloojee, PhD
