dc.description.abstractWhether it serves a utilitarian purpose or is simply an aesthetic statement in the landscape, Land Art gets attention. Land Art has found favor in landscape architecture due to its powerful meaning and creativity in response to land. As a means of expression, Land Art gives landscape architects an opportunity to develop a new language in the landscape by stimulating sensory perception. Stormwater is harvested and revealed along Brooks Promenade, located on The University of Georgia campus, in a Land Art expression to increase understanding of natural processes. In the tradition of the Land Art Movement, people are encouraged to experience this landscape in a new way. This design proposal also serves educational and ecological purposes, bringing attention to environmental processes and issues. Since many ecological problems are caused by our disengagement with Nature, featuring stormwater as a valuable element in the urban landscape is a step toward reconnecting people with Nature. Hopefully, this reconnection will lead to better solutions to ecological problems in cities.
