MLA Alumnus Shun Ishimine's Project Featured by World Landscape Architecture

Congratulations to Shun Ishimine, MLA’21 for having his project “What Can the Banana Teach Us?” selected to be featured on the World Landscape Architecture website! Shun’s work originated in Assistant Professor Phoebe White’s ARCH 696 “On Behalf of Plants” elective course.

The banana is a Polynesian-introduced canoe plant and long-standing food staple. This speculative landscape architecture project explores the social and educational benefits of integrating banana farming practices into Hawaii’s elementary school curricula.
