How Genius of Place Helps You Think (and Design!) Differently: An Interview with Jennifer Barnes of 55-5 Consulting and Alexandra Ramsden of Rushing, Authors of the SeedKit
If you’re designing for the Pacific Northwest, then you’ll find the SeedKit, a report filled with local strategies, essential for your place-based design. Jennifer Barnes (55-5 Consulting) and Alexandra Ramsden (Rushing), founders of the Biomimicry Puget Sound network, began a project called Urban Greenprint to use biomimicry to revitalize their city. In the process, they created a Genius of Place report and fortunately for all of us, made it available for anyone to use. Intrigued, we decided to interview Jennifer and Alexandra to learn more about their place, the SeedKit, and how they have been using it.
