On June 10-11, 2016 at the University of Pennsylvaniain Philadelphia, LAF will celebrate their 50th Anniversary through a 2 day conference and dinner! The summit will critically reflect on what landscape architecture has achieved over the last 50 years and present bold ideas for how it will move into and shape the future.

In addition, building on this five decade long legacy, this one-time historic gathering will also honor a redrafting of the original 1966 Declaration of Concern.
