Temple Transforms the Urban World


Temple University Ambler Students Admire Their Work

The transformation begins with you. So say the students at Temple University Ambler’s department of landscape architecture and horticulture. Their exhibit, metromorphosis, examines global urbanization and ways of converting our asphalt-and-concrete surroundings into green habitats. How is it done? Enrich habitat, conserve resources, and protect water.

This inspiring landscape (designed and constructed by the Temple students) features a metro-meadow of paved space now reclaimed by nature. Other highlights include the vertical garden, eco-wall, and rain garden.  Each element of the exhibits merits examination, so take your time. Best of all, the Temple undergrads responsible for this awareness-raising creation are on-hand to answer questions and guide you through.
