The Winter 2020 “Trees” issue of L|P is now available online!

Everywhere is urbanized now. And the need for urban infrastructure seems to be diametrically opposed to what trees and living systems need to flourish. How can we bring these two opposite conditions together, perhaps in a way that they could even reinforce each other? Can we bring some of these qualities into the city, instead of having to leave the city to find them?
We brought together six of the top minds in landscape architecture to talk about the role of trees in an LA’s work, and in our society – read what they, and a forest of other LAs, ecologists, and other tree “experts” contributed in the Winter 2020 issue of LANDSCAPES | PAYSAGES. 
After we released our Winter 2020 (Trees) issue for delivery, we discovered that a key article, “UNE ÎLE, UN PARC ET SON ARBRE”, had a number of important updates that did not make it into the hard-copy issue. Fortunately, we have been able to revise this article in our digital issue – both in the original French version and in the English translation contained in LP+. We apologize to readers and those involved with Park Jean Drapeau for any confusion, and encourage all readers to visit the updated issue, by clicking on the following links.

CSLA-OALA Congress 2021 to be held Virtually

Meet your Colleagues, Celebrate Your Profession and Get Informed from the Comfort of Your Chair!

The CSLA-OALA Congress Planning Committee will be offering the 2021 Congress via an online platform for the first time in the history of the Congress.

The Committee reviewed a number of factors and decided that due to the current global climate and the uncertainty surrounding COVID-19, the CSLA-OALA 2021 Congress will be held completely virtual in May 2021.

We are excited to plan an accessible online program that will offer education, engagement and networking to landscape architects all across the country! Save the travel time and accommodation costs, and still gain all the benefits of this exciting annual event.

We are currently negotiating with service providers and the volunteers to ensure we offer the highest quality virtual experience to our members.

Please continue to visit the Congress website as we will post an updated program in the coming weeks!

L/P Fall 2020 Issue

Given today’s global challenges, collaborative effort is a necessary response, more effective than working in isolation or competition. Interestingly, woman practitioners feature prominently in all of these stories of collaborations.

Discover how collaboration not only makes for great projects, but has become even more important in our Covid-world – all in the Fall 2020 issue of LANDSCAPES | PAYSAGES.
