I am joined by Ting Chin, founding principal of Linearscape, an award-winning New York City-based design firm. Linearscape was awarded the prestigious 2012 AIA ENYA Award for their submission “Sym’bio’pia” to the Harlem Edge Competition. Known for its unique designs, the firm focuses on connecting the urban environments to architecture, and architecture to landscape. Today we discuss the ways that buildings and landscapes can be integrated effectively and efficiently with thoughtful designs.
Ting also shares her experience designing Wild Walk, an interactive nature walk at the Wild Center. Built-in the forest, this project guides visitors into the treetops to offer a new perspective of the forest. It is a seamless integration of nature and the urban landscape, pushing the boundaries of innovative design. Through her designs, practices, and teachings, Ting continues to inspire future architects by cultivating connections between people and place.
Join us on this week’s episode as we discuss the design process of Wild Walk, how to connect the urban landscape with nature, and her experience as the founding principal of an award-winning interdisciplinary design studio based out of New York City.
