SPUR Lunchtime Forum: At the border of city and sea: New public landscapes for coastal cities

Designing public landscapes in coastal settings presents unique challenges and spectacular opportunities. AECOM principals Alma DuSolier and James Haig Streeter, who are serving as consultants for SPUR on the Ocean Beach Master Plan, will present innovative recent work in Los Angeles and Blackpool, England. Hear how landscape designers engage the overlapping layers of ecology, climate, history and urbanism at the border of city and sea — and what lessons their recent projects in other cities hold for our own effort to turn Ocean Beach into San Francisco’s next great public open space
