UT Arlington Inquiry Magazine: Winning Landscapes
February 5, 2014
In a Winter 2014 article titled "Winning Landscapes", UT Arlington Inquiry Magazine discusses Kent Elliott and Blake Samper, landscape architecture students from UT Arlington, and their honorable mention in the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Campus RainWorks Challenge.
"As part of their design studio project, landscape architecture graduate students Kent Elliott and Blake Samper competed against 218 other student teams from 42 states; the competition challenged them to create innovative green infrastructure designs that would promote sustainable community impact.
"Elliott and Samper proposed a design that would replace impervious pavement with permeable paving and an aqueduct while adding increased tree canopy and vegetation, rain gardens, green roofs, a rain barrel-staircase, vegetated swales, 'hydrowalls,' and vegetated terraces."
Kent Elliott and Blake Samper's design took home honorable mention.
