The Landscape Morphologies Lab (LML) is a collaborative research entity based within the University of Southern California Architecture School Landscape Architecture Graduate Department focused on exploring the intersection between landscape form and infrastructural performance. The lab is dedicated to developing the means to improve the design of multi-performative landscape infrastructures – both improving environmental resilience of our cities and providing a higher quality of life and well being for its residents, human or otherwise.
With the application of advanced design research and technologies the lab seeks “near adjacent” potentials of existing conditions – performative morphologies and interventions that are both transformative and readily obtainable. Projects range from broad topical research initiatives to specific project research and design studies. While based in the USC Landscape Architecture Department the lab is essentially collaborative as it seeks to fold multiple performance aspects into landscape design. Collaborators include investigators from the Sci-Arc, Viterbi School of Engineering, USC School of Policy, Planning, and Development, USC Earth Sciences, LA Department of Water and Power, Army Corp of Engineering, the LA Bureau of Engineering, among others.
