Viewing party in Bauer Wurster East Courtyard
This semester the LAEP Lecture Series is focusing on the process of turning conceptual dreams into reality. The first lecture will feature Meghan Talarowski, executive director of Studio Ludo, presenting Arches Playground at the Omaha Riverfront.
This project is an excellent example of how applied research can transform our built environment in game-changing ways. As the director of the London Study on Playgrounds and the National Study on Playgrounds, Meghan’s experience will inspire students that are beginning their final year thesis journey.
