American Society of Landscape Architects Arizona Chapter Exhibit
LSD is participating in a new exhibit at Phoenix City Hall. The exhibit is sponsored by the American Society of Landscape Architects Arizona Chapter (AzASLA), a non-profit professional organization. The exhibit showcases the works of landscape architects from throughout Arizona, and how they benefit not only visual quality, physical comfort, and economic value in our cities, towns, and rural areas, but how they have a direct effect on public health and safety.
LSD’s board highlights three recent projects: U.S. 60 Gonzales Pass, Tres Rios Restoration, and Chandler Heights Veterans Oasis Park.
LSD’s Craig Coronato, FASLA, LEED-AP, is leading AzASLA’s Advocacy Committee. His participation and leadership is a continuation of his work in Colorado where he advocated legislation to restore licensure for landscape architects. He organized and co-chaired the nonprofit Colorado Council of Landscape Architects to represent the profession on the issue. The legislation passed in 2007, making Colorado the 49th state to license landscape architects.
The traveling exhibit will also visit the ASU Design School Lobby, City of Scottsdale, City of Peoria, City of Glendale, Maricopa County Flood Control District, City of Flagstaff, and City of Chandler.
