The West Philadelphia Landscape Project pioneered the use of the Web in design, planning, education, and community development. The Web has been an integral part of WPLP since early 1996, when our first website was launched. Since then, millions of people from more than 90 countries have visited the WPLP website.
The first version featured my students’ designs, a digital database, design reports, and built projects of 1987-1991. Over the years, the website has evolved, and it continues to be a showcase and a forum. The current website, launched in 2018, features interactive maps, multimedia storytelling, design proposals, and an archive of former WPLP websites.
