EDM Featured in Landscape Architecture in Canada

September 1, 2015


Landscape Architecture in Canada chronicles the history of Canadian landscape architecture, and includes a section on EDM’s work relating to the North Dartmouth Planning Study, completed in 1994 for the City of Dartmouth:

“In Nova Scotia, the Halifax-based office of Environmental Design & Management Ltd. (EDM) developed considerable expertise in the analysis of the carrying capacity of site through the use of geographic information systems, combined with current computer technology. Principal Margot Young and her associates employed these systems to define detailed suitability maps for residential, industrial, open-space, and other land uses, bringing up to date the methods pioneered by McHarg and developed by Carl Steinitz, with whom Young had studied at Harvard.”
