Game ON: Designing high-performing novel landscapes to tackle climate change

What if designing sustainable greenspace in your own neighborhood was a game—with points won for carbon sequestration, stormwater management, and heat relief? What if you could see your ideas take shape—and know how much they would likely cost—in a friendly competition with people in your community? Turning those “what ifs” into reality is the vision of SEAS Assistant Professors Mark Lindquist and Derek Van Berkel.
