CSLA-AALA Congress Call for Abstracts – deadline extended to November 27th, 2019

The Essence of Time: A Speculative Reflection on Landscape Architecture
Landscape architecture has been forged by the challenges and opportunities presented by changing cultural and ecological needs of our world. Our profession is defined by our motivations and ideas in responding to these needs. What if we’re wrong?
The 2020 Congress is a call to arms for critical reflection and speculation.

  • How will our responses to our present challenges be viewed in the future?
  • Are we thinking big enough?
  • Are we doing enough to address rapid societal and environmental change?
  • Are driverless cars the answer?
  • How should reconciliation affect the foundations of our profession?
  • What are the building materials of the future?

Talk to us about your motivations and your
critical thoughts. Where have we failed and succeeded? Push the profession.
Invigorate our practice. Lead us to a better future.

The extended deadline is November 27th, 2019.
