Local Events Highlight National Landscape Architecture Month

| Green Built Environment, Landscape Architecture | April 04, 2011

WASHINGTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–From a newly created traveling park in San Diego to the New Jersey Governor’s office, local chapters of the American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA) will volunteer in their communities, reach out to schools and educate the public this April during National Landscape Architecture Month. In addition, the entire April issue of Landscape Architecture magazine is available online for free

Among the many events this April, expect benches to show up with virtual informational markers in Indiana at important sites designed by landscape architects. In Missouri, a community comes together to re-design a park to increase water quality and improve wildlife habitat. Connecticut and Wisconsin state houses will display award winning designs from the profession. In Arizona, professionals will offer seminars at their local library on topics ranging from the urban heat island effect to lizard species habitats. 

“Landscape architecture encompasses everything from giant ecological restorations to single family homes – balancing the built and natural environments in every step of the process. These events will encourage everyone to learn about the profession and how it creates sustainable communities during National Landscape Architecture Month,” said ASLA President Jonathan Mueller, FASLA. 

National Landscape Architecture Month encompasses Earth Day on April 22nd and Frederick Law Olmstead’s birthday on April 26th, the father of American landscape architecture.

About the author

After working at various design practices on a full-time and freelance basis, and starting his own design firm, David McFadden saw that there was a gap to be filled in the industry. In 1984, he created an expansive hub for architects and hiring firms to sync up, complete projects, and mutually benefit. That hub was Consulting For Architects Inc., which enabled architects to find meaningful design work, while freeing hiring firms from tedious hiring-firing cycles. This departure from the traditional, more rigid style of employer-employee relations was just what the industry needed - flexibility and adaption to modern work circumstances. David has successfully advised his clients through the trials and tribulations of four recessions – the early 80’s, the early 90’s, the early 2000’s, and the Great Recession of 2007.
