ASLA Conference

Landscape Architecture students had the unique opportunity to trade their time as volunteers for attendance of the ASLA Conference in Denver from November 21st until the 24th. In total, students volunteered over 700 hours of time! Which was the said to be the greatest turn out for student volunteers in the conference's history.

 Students volunteered as expo attendants, room monitors, and greeters, having the opportunity to listen to the lectures of some of the biggest names in the field.  A few students were introduced to Peter Walker!

The Expo was held on Saturday and Sunday the 22nd & 23rd of November. The expo provided students with the opportunity to test and visualize materials, play equipment and be introduced to new computer rendering programs. There were also book signing events, illustrations up for viewing, and unlimited opportunities to connect with professionals in the field.

 Overall, the 2014 ASLA Conference and Expo was a novel experience for everyone involved. If you would like to see more photos from the conference, please visit our website:
