LA 7061 Advanced Topics Studio: Baton Rouge Zoo (Spring 2016)
Third-year Master of Landscape Architecture students in Associate Professor Austin Allen’s advanced topic studio worked with the North Baton Rouge community and the adjacent city of Baker to reimagine the Baton Rouge Zoo. Keeping in mind the community’s concern about the economic loss that could happen in an already depressed area, the students proposed keeping the zoo in its current North Baton Rouge location. The project incorporated urban design strategies, such as water management and economic development in North Baton Rouge and the city of Baker.
