Landscape Architecture Magazine’s July print issue included an article on the recent wave of podcasts dedicated to landscape. Featured was SCAPE’s use of audio as a way of weaving stories into our landscape designs and ideas.
SCAPE first used this medium in the 2009 project, Safari 7: a series of audio files that were timed to the stops on New York City’s 7 train. More recently, SCAPE translated that format into the Town Branch Commons project in Lexington, Kentucky. Working with students at the University of Kentucky, the team created Town Branch Water Walk– podcasts that tell the story of the landscape and community. The audio aspect adds the ability to communicate the ideas behind the vision for Town Branch Commons to the wider community, making stormwater quality relevant by linking it with the history, culture, and ecology of the city.
