Poona Futures

Thomas, Glenn S. (2006) Poona Futures. In Mooney, Patrick F. (Ed.) Shifting Ground: Landscape Architecture in the Age of the New Normal, 14 -17 June 2006, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.



Poona Futures is the most recent in a decade of advanced landscape design studios that explore the intersection of urban design, local economic development and, more recently, the concept of learning communities through direct community engagement. The students and their "client" community explore alternative futures that inform and assist responses to change management. It provides a rich and challenging learning experience for students. The approach to studio and learning design that has evolved in these projects, the influences of community body types, and the impact key people involved in the engagement process have on project outcomes are discussed.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
