New Buffalo Group A

Published on

In September 2008, WRT Principal Kathy Garcia and Landscape Designer Jennifer Martel joined 27 other young designers in New Buffalo, Michigan for the second Xtreme LA event.

Sponsored by site furniture manufacturer Landscape Forms and co-sponsored by The Landscape Architecture Foundation, the event brought together the designers for an intense three-day planning charrette. The purpose of the event was for the designers to brainstorm a design and development strategy for New Buffalo, a town that currently has no such strategy. The designers were divided into three teams and challenged to present their designs to the mayor and residents of the town.
