Closing out Landscape Architecture month with Lia's interest with landscape architecture and sports field design. Thanks for following and reading our contributions to LAM this year. Hope you've enjoyed learning about some of our colleagues, their interests and passions, and what makes them unique. Happy Landscape Architecture month from Lloyd Sports + Engineering.
While learning more about what roles a landscape architect’s knowledge can help with, my mind never gravitated towards sports field design. When I was introduced to Lloyd and the idea of sports design, I immediately thought it was awesome.
I recently finished up my senior project at Cal Poly, which was focused on enhancing the wine tasting experience through recreational activity. It was a challenge to integrate these two ideas due to the lack of precedent work within the United States. Despite this, it allowed for my project proposal to remain unique.
Through this design process, I realized how challenging it is to design around a precise, sharp-edged field or court. Conceptualizing a space involves understanding how to blend high activity recreation with low, leisure activity. For this specific project, I also faced the challenge of finding a way of blending wine tasting with recreational activity.
In conclusion, this project lead up to my entry into the workforce, making me feel even excited for more challenges to come.
