Event description

Description

Join us for one or both of these leadership events on Thursday, June 13 to showcase and celebrate leading-edge thinking and achievements in landscape architecture and sustainability.



LAF Innovation + Leadership Symposium - 4:00-6:30 pm - The Arena Stage at the Mead Center for American Theater, 1101 6th St. SW, Washington D.C. 20024 (2.0 LA CES CEU credits available)

In what promises to be a powerful event, the seven 2018-2019 LAF Fellowship for Innovation and Leadership recipients will present their projects on public housing landscapes, legislative frameworks for resilient urban waterfronts, a landscape carbon calculator, immersive technologies, remediating coal ash ponds, cultural diversity and landscape interpretation, and environmental justice through community engagement and education.

The symposium is the culmination of the year-long LAF Fellowship for Innovation and Leadership, a unique program and $25,000 award that supports mid-career, senior-level, and emerging professionals as they develop and test new ideas that will drive the future of the landscape architecture discipline.

See the full symposium schedule and learn more about the 2018-2019 LAF Fellowship cohort and their projects here.

2.0 LA CES CEU credits are available to attendees and the presentations will be followed by a cocktail hour where guests can mingle and meet the Fellows.

2019 LAF Awards Dinner - 7:00-9:30 pm - Molly Smith Study in the Arena Stage at the Mead Center for American Theater, 1101 6th St. SW, Washington D.C. 20024

Immediately following the symposium, LAF will host an awards dinner to recognize the 2019 recipients of the LAF Medal and Founders’ Award, our highest honors for individuals and organizations that have made a significant and sustained contribution to the LAF mission of supporting the preservation, improvement, and enhancement of the environment. Joseph E. Brown, former chief innovation officer at AECOM, will be presented with the 2019 LAF Medal. The Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center of Austin, Texas will receive the 2019 Founders’ Award.

The LAF Awards Dinner will be an opportunity to not only recognize the award winners, but also to continue conversations with the 2018-2019 Fellows, to meet the 2019-2020 Fellowship cohort, and to mingle with LAF's Board of Directors and other invited guests.



There is a combined ticket option for attendees who plan to attend both events, or tickets can be purchased separately for those who would only like to attend one of the events. Student pricing is also available for the symposium.

Please note that tickets may be transferred to a new attendee, but refunds will not be granted for either event.
