Department of Landscape Architecture
Alumnus and longtime friend and donor of the department Jim Martin (BLA '72) has established a new scholarship. The James Martin Family Scholarship in Landscape Architecture will benefit students who have a strong interest and passion for the field of landscape design. Landscape Architecture student John H. Prince sat down with Professors Aneesha Dharwadker and Conor O’Shea to talk about their involvement in the FirstFollowers Learning Lab. It is an ongoing project that uses design-build principles to teach carpentry, residential construction, and landscape skills to formerly incarcerated people in the Urbana-Champaign community.
