This year the American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA) looked to the future for World Landscape Architecture Month (WLAM) by featuring ASLA student chapters, who are the next generation of landscape architects.
In 2018, ASLA continued its This is Landscape Architecture social media campaign. More than 1,638 users posted nearly 6,000 instances of their favorite landscape architect-designed spaces with #WLAM2018. These posts helped educate 2.8 million people around the globe about the profession.
To see a glimpse of the future of landscape architecture, ASLA asked a different student chapter to take over our Instagram each day in April. Arizona State University showed us how they are exploring the basics of design: sketching.
Thomas Jefferson University showed off the latest technology in designing landscapes.
The student chapter at the University of Maryland showcased how landscape architects shaped their campus.
ASLA student chapters also work with their local communities on projects. Auburn University shared its Alabama Lab, where students “use design to help create and continue conversations about local issues across a larger geographical and disciplinary spectrum.”
The chapter at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, featured their public awareness initiatives, like PARK(ing) Day.
As we focus on the future, ASLA also used April as an opportunity to unveil its new logo and rebranded look.
