About the Lab: The UW Green Futures Lab (GFL), directed by Professor Nancy Rottle, develops innovative approaches to the ecological planning and design of public space through interdisciplinary research, design and education. Faculty and students advance solutions related to urban green infrastructure — streets, trails, parks, open spaces, drainages and shorelines – systems that together comprise interconnected networks of the public realm. Such multi-functional networks support successful dense urban settlement, providing facilities that may help to protect climate, preserve biodiversity, foster equitable health and improve quality of life. The GFL works with communities to envision their sustainable futures, exploring artful solutions that incorporate low-impact development strategies, community space, habitat restoration, low-carbon energy and pedestrian and bicycle mobility.
