Brad regards landscape as a medium to think, see, and make change for social and environmental justice. His work unites three recent and significant strands of ecological resilience inquiry: the articulation, implementation, and visualization of landscape performance metrics via ecosystem services; the indices derived as pattern language for the interpretation, analysis, assessment, and integration of change as designed adaptation; and the knowledge reorganization necessary to empower the design process via models with which to accommodate flux, flow and other boundary blurring phenomena. By pairing metrics with modeling Brad hopes to further our understanding of resilience as it relates to the design process and address larger concerns for bidirectional convergence between design, the humanities, and sciences.
