Design and study.
VanWieren’s work focuses on the design and function of green infrastructure at community and regional scales. We design and investigate landscape solutions that regenerate urban ecosystems and improve people’s connection to landscape processes.
We study this in the context of brownfield redevelopment, working landscapes, and vacant land planning. In addition, we also explore people’s perception of urban ecological landscape design approaches as it relates to creating culturally sustainable landscape solutions and engaging people for landscape change.
