GeoDesign at Redlands

Geo design
• Together with Esri, the University of Redlands and design experts hosted and participated in the 2nd International GeoDesign Summit, and a GeoDesign Workshop focused on the City of Redlands in January 2011.

• MS GIS graduate David Robinson recently led a GeoDesign Charrette for MS GIS students and faculty. This intensive brainstorming workshop had participants experiment with design methods for GIS professionals and designers to work collaboratively, a fundamental tenet of GeoDesign.

• Dr. Tim Krantz led an Environmental Design Studio, through which College of Arts and Sciences students used GIS tools, land use planning principles and economic models to develop a conceptual plan for redesigning the Redlands Mall into a mixed-use development. The plan was presented to the City of Redlands Council and Planning Commission as a new and exciting opportunity to revitalize this location while enhancing the City’s unique heritage and downtown resources.
