The Value of Sustainable Landscaping in Architecture


When thoughtfully considered in the overall architecture of a building, the outdoors can be powerful. A sustainably crafted space can benefit not only the health and wellbeing of building occupants, but also the environment for many, many years to come.

Jessica Petro and Rick Clarke of Page’s EYP describe it as a dance, a choreography between permanent textures and seasonal softscapes whether it’s the grounds spilling out from around a building or a series of rooftop terraces. It’s with their insight that we will look at:

  • How working with the landscape can create more resilience in both the land and the building.
  • The human health benefits of suitably crafted outdoor spaces.
  • What constitutes ‘sustainable landscaping.’
  • Examples of sustainable landscaping that can be used to spark inspiration.
