Seattle Parks and Recreation (SPR) recently engaged Kennedy Jenks and Nakano Associates to assist them in exploring opportunities for water reuse in their facilities. Our team assessed the effectiveness of SPR’s existing water reuse and conservation systems, evaluated other reuse and conservation systems that SPR could implement, and determined a high-level implementation plan for the reuse and conservation systems examined to decrease long-term operations and maintenance costs.
This November marks the inaugural award of the Kenichi Nakano Endowed Scholarship. The scholarship was established to honor Kenichi’s years of teaching, mentoring and practice in landscape architecture. Every year it will be awarded to a University of Washington Landscape Architecture student, with the first being masters student Matt Grosser.
Join us in remembering Kenichi’s life and work at an exhibit hosted by the UW Landscape Architecture department at Gould Hall on the UW Campus. This retrospective exhibit celebrates the life and career of Kenichi Nakano and shows a portfolio of projects from his more than 40-year career.Read More
