Jingting Li has been the recipient of several honors and awards including Year Level Book Awards in TopoGRAFT Studio, Don Logan - Southern Progress Endowed Scholarship, Sigma Lambda Alpha National Landscape Architecture Honor Society, National and Alabama Chapters ASLA 2016 Student Awards.
The submission pieces are part of a large body of landscape work for TopoGRAFT Studio.
As a riverside urban park in Columbus, GA with a detailed focus on topographic resolution and community integration, the project explores the questions of the role of topography in linking people, place, and program. The study demonstrates how to uncover the latent potential of an urban territory as an archive of interrelated natural and cultural events. Originating from material exploration such as a formal design inspiration, the design attempts to provide critically-needed river recreation in a landscape perspective. The landscape, sparked by the energetic flow of water, exerts combinative power to simultaneously enhance urban connectivity, facilitate experiences and activities, create habitat, and clean water.
