BLA Student Featured in Spacing Magazine Article "Vision Realized: Isaak Kornelsen Memorial Parklet"
Jonathan Behnke, a Bachelor of Landscape Architecture student in the School of Environmental Design and Rural Development, University of Guelph is featured in an article in Spacing (Edmonton) magazine entitled "Vision Realized: Isaak Kornelsen Memorial Parklet".
Just over one year after Jonathan developed a vision for a parklet to memorialize former classmate, Isaak Kornelsen, his vision is becoming a reality. Isaak was a University of Alberta student and Golden Bears track athlete who died in a cycling accident on his way to work in Edmonton at Cafe Mosaics on Whyte Avenue in August 2012.

Jonathan is currently working with the Meewasin Valley Authority in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan and will be returning to his fourth year of study in the BLA program in September.
