The Landscape Architecture Program at VT and the ASLA-VT is co-hosting this year’s VA ASLA fall continuing education meeting September 18 and 19th.

We are inviting all alumni and current students to VT to partake of all or part of the two-day program. There’s been a lot of construction on campus and the program includes discussion of the campus design objectives underlying the changes. You can also acquire up to 9 CEUs for your landscape architecture license.

Students will be hosting an open studio on Friday (10:30 to 12:45), and offering their portfolios up for critique from 10:30 to 12:30.

LAR Professor Dean Bork will be part of the Saturday program. 
This is a great time to come see what the program is up to.

Our Fall Conference will focus on facilitating change in the designed environment by providing local educational field trips, a campus sketch crawl, and presentations on current campus and municipal planning strategies and therapeutic concepts for park and facility planning.
