Killarney Elementary Legacy Gardens (2022)
The Legacy Gardens concept was designed around the concept of LandRoom, developed by Northern Land Studio in 2017. Accordingly with this design concept, an outdoor space, a park, a plaza, allows for a responsive, adaptive redesign, reflecting the spatial and aesthetic logic of its occupants, as they come. Same as a "good bones" house accommodates generations upon generations of homeowners, allowing passively for a functional and aesthetic appropriation, a LandRoom breaks away from the "forever", set-in-stone design practice, leaving room for dynamic adaptation.
This plan was developed for the City of Iqaluit by a consulting team led by George Harris, Senior Landscape Architect/ Partner, George Harris Collaborative Inc.
Urban Analyst, Research and Planning, Graphic Design and Engagement Specialist

local capacity to sustain a circular economy.
