2017 Design Symposium – Resilient Landscapes

By Jean Senechal Biggs

With increasing frequency and urgency, communities both small and large are being called upon to adapt to a changing world. 2017 brings new environmental challenges, economic uncertainty, a changing political landscape, and fast-evolving technology. The extent to which we can employ our skills to design, implement, and monitor resilient landscapes will have long-term consequences for humanity and the planet.

ASLA Oregon’s 2017 Design Symposium, Strength & Beauty: Resilient Landscapes, will explore how landscape architecture can address the impacts of a changing environment. Designers and academic researchers will gather for a day of learning and collaboration in an event that brings together over 125 landscape architecture professionals. VICTOR STANLEY is this year’s Presenting Sponsor.

Gina Ford, ASLA, with Sasaki Associates will present this year’s Keynote Address, The 21st Century River City: Case Studies in Designing for Resilience. Her talk will explore case studies of how river cities across the United States are integrating ideas of environmental, cultural and economic resiliency through design.

Our Exhibitor’s Showcase will feature the latest in products and services from Victor Stanley, Maglin, Kompan, Rainbird, Ironsmith, Northwest Playground, Mutual Materials, Northwest Recreation, Cascadian Nurseries, Columbia Cascade, Forms + Surfaces, and Landscape Forms.

We’ll wrap up the day with ASLA Oregon After Hours, our happy hour in the Sentinel Hotel’s Renaissance Room. See old friends and make new ones as we continue to conversation. Maglin is this year’s Happy Hour Sponsor.
