Emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence, virtual reality, and digital fabrication tools are increasingly pervasive in landscape practices, yet often struggle to be meaningfully integrated into practice. This panel shares critical case studies regarding successful and unsuccessful methods for integrating and adopting these technologies to advance design goals in practice.

Learning Objectives:

Anya Domlesky, ASLA

Associate and Co-lead of XL, SWA's Research and Innovation Lab
