Xtreme LA - A New Vision

Kansas State University

An Xtreme LA Challenge

On October 7, 2014 a group of twenty young design professionals, identified by their firms as potential leaders of their professions, arrived in Manhattan, Kansas for two days of intense charrette focused on envisioning a new urban landscape for the fast-growing city. 

The group, composed of landscape architects, architects and interior designers, was joined by a dozen Kansas State University design students in architecture, interior architecture, product design, landscape architecture and planning, along with two distinguished landscape architects who served as team leaders for the challenge: Peter Schaudt of Chicago-based Hoerr Schaudt Landscape Architects, and Shane Coen of Coen + Partners based in Minneapolis. The KSU campus was home base for the Xtreme LA (Extreme Landscape Architecture) event sponsored by Landscape Forms and co-hosted by Landscape Forms President, Richard Heriford with Barbara Deutsch, Executive Director, Landscape Architecture Foundation, and Stephanie Rolley, Professor and Department Head, Department of Landscape Architecture and Regional & Community Planning, Kansas State University.
