Planting the future : Linear Consulting Botanical Garden development proposal Ang, Michael; Chen, Rayna; Cole, Steven; Hashemi, Saman; Dela Pena, Dan; Feng, Iris


The following report outlines the interdisciplinary process that our group will undertake in order to determine possible improvements to the UBC Botanical Garden. This report will analyze the background requirements and mandates set forth by the UBC Botanical Garden, and will provide a series of detailed project milestones. In addition, this document will provide extensive conceptual designs and process considerations for areas pertaining to water runoff, garden accessibility and attractions. Further still, given the financial stipulations attached to the following project, an incremental implementation process will be detailed for a variety of key milestone projects which would address major areas of improvement in the garden. Primary to the botanical garden’s mandate is that the categorization and integrity of the flora and fauna be maintained. As such, all proposed conceptual designs and additions will aim to improve patronage while minimizing the impact on the garden’s operation. All major conceptual designs will provide generalized scheduling for a one, five and ten year time frame to allow the botanical garden administration to partially implement any improvements put forward in this report. In order to gain further insight into the benefits of the conceptual designs within the report, general feasibility studies and case studies of other garden installations will be looked at and discussed briefly as well.
