Rundell Ernstberger Associates will participate in Greening the Heartland 2012 at the Indiana Convention Center in downtown Indianapolis on May 16-18. Representatives of the various interdependent disciplines and products of sustainability will present their visions and solutions for sustainable communities as part of this year’s theme, “Building Community.” Among the speakers scheduled to give presentations at the conference are REA’s Kevin Osburn and Tricia Smallwood.
Kevin Osburn, a principal at REA, has over 20 years of experience in the planning and design of urban spaces, parks, pedestrian and bicycle transportation projects, and sustainable sites. Recently, he has served as lead designer for the Indianapolis Cultural Trail, which will be the subject of his presentation: The Indianapolis Cultural Trail: A Model for 21st Century Sustainable Transportation and Infrastructure Design. The Cultural Trail has become a new icon for the City of Indianapolis, and has drawn global attention for its innovative design and transformative impact.
Tricia Smallwood, a landscape architect and associate at REA, has experience in a wide variety of projects including parks, trails, streetscapes and urban development sites. Tricia will share her experience and expertise on sustainable site design at the session, The Efroymson Conservation Center: Nature Conservancy of Indiana Goes Green in Downtown Indianapolis, along with Axis Architects.
