In a recent article entitled, “The Measured Response,”1 Landscape Architecture Magazine (LAM) featured Design Workshop’s comprehensive design approach, DW Legacy Design®. The article, which appeared in the March 2012 issue, opens with a large image of Design Workshop’s Denver studio. Allyson Mendenhall, who leads the DW Legacy Design® Program for the firm, is laughing while working with a team on developing metrics for a project. This image is an open invitation to read this convincing and interesting article, which focuses on Design Workshop’s broad performance-based design approach and its influence on landscape architecture education and research. And the influence is expected to be sweeping and far reaching.
