The City from a Plant’s Perspective started from the premise that movement is inherent in botany (plants), design (landscape), and choreography. Residents examined how their individual investigative methods, classification systems, and ideal outcomes intersected for effective research and public pedagogy. Time, succession, dispersal, and disturbance anchored research at two distinct coastal sites. Common ground and new possibilities emerged by generating multiple definitions of seven basic movement qualities, mapping similarities/differences across disciplines through language and concepts. How do divergent meanings help us reconceptualize our disciplinary perspectives? These matrices have continued to shape iLANDing.
