At next week’s Annual Meeting of the American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA), the work of a number of PennDesign faculty, alumni, and students will highlighted.
The ASLA Annual Meeting and EXPO is considered to be the largest gathering of landscape architects in the world, and is in Philadelphia from October 19-22. Among the faculty members who will be making presentations at the conference are:
Billy Fleming, Wilks Family Director, The Ian L. McHarg Center for Urbanism and Ecology
PennDesign is also represented among the recipients of the ASLA 2018 Honors, the highest awards that the organization presents each year. Alumna Linda Jewell (MLA’75) was selected to receive the ASLA Medal. The Landscape Architecture Firm Award went to Andropogon Associates, the Philadelphia and Raleigh-based firm whose founder and partners, including Carol Franklin (MLA’65), José M. Almiñana, and Yaki Miodovnik, have taught at PennDesign.
Timothy Baird (MLA’80) and Corner will be two of 31 ASLA members elected to the ASLA Council of Fellows for their contributions to the landscape architecture profession.
PennDesign is hosting an alumni reception to coincide with the conference. Dean and Paley Professor Fritz Steiner welcomes alumni and friends from the landscape architecture community back to campus on Saturday, October 20.
