Creating a Language of Landscape Design for Jewish Meaning and Identity
So you're building a Jewish garden, farm, gathering place, courtyard, or campus. Jewish architectural design has a small but established vocabulary of forms and modalities (e.g. synagogues, museums, sculpture), but no such parallel exists for Jewish landscape architecture. So how do you reflect the values and ideals your Jewish community strives to embody in the landscape? How do we tell Jewish stories, express Jewish ideas, values, symbols, language, meaning, and identity through physical cues and expressions ... and what does Kabbalah have to do with stormwater management?
