In the summer of 2002, Drs. Steward T.A. Pickett, Mary L. Cadenasso, and J. Morgan Grove, scientists from the Baltimore Ecosystem Study (BES), approached Brian McGrath at the Urban Design Program at Columbia University’s Graduate School of Architecture, Planning, and Preservation (GSAPP) with an innovative cross-disciplinary collaborative opportunity. Funded by the National Science Foundation’s Long-Term Ecological Research Program (LTER), the BES brings together researchers from a variety of social and biophysical science disciplines to engage in data collection, education, and community outreach. Their primary goal is to understand and explain metropolitan Baltimore as a complex ecological system. In an intrepid and prescient next step for BES and LTER, Drs. Pickett, Cadenasso and Grove put forth the radical proposition that urban designers can help to break new ground in the field of ecology and that current ecosystem science would enliven our own design milieu.
