This report describes a workshop held in January, 2001 in Santa Barbara, California. The workshop focused on landscape architecture, and brought together participants from both sides of this tension between the investigative and implementation disciplines, to explore its dimensions and to map directions for the future. Its central theme was landscape change, an area of concern to both investigators and practitioners.
Summaries of the four keynote presentations are provided as well as summaries of the subsequent plenary discussion on each of the four themes, and by summaries of each of the workshop’s breakout sessions. The final section provides a short summary of the workshop’s conclusions and ideas for follow-on actions. Appendix A provides the list of participants, and Appendix B presents an aggregated synthesis of the 80 research agenda suggestions provided by the participants during the workshop.
