April is World Landscape Architecture Month (WLAM), an international celebration of landscape architecture. WLAM introduces the profession to the public by showcasing landscape architect-designed spaces around the world.
From the High Line in New York to your favorite local park, WLAM uses social media to celebrate the work of ASLA’s members and landscape architects around the globe.
The profession will be on display on April 12 when WTTW’s “10 Parks That Changed America” debuts on PBS. The show follows the evolution of public spaces from across the country and illustrates how landscape architecture shapes how we interact with our environment.
World Landscape Architecture Month is the month long celebration of landscape architecture and designed public and private spaces. Established by the American Society of Landscape Architecture, WLAM aims to demonstrate how landscape architecture affects our daily lives. Additionally, each ASLA member will receive a wallet sized card with “This Is Landscape Architecture” on it to take pictures of it at designed spaces to share on social media. ASLA will showcase all of these efforts to create a national story about connecting students across the world collaborating ideas that promotes the landscape architecture profession.
