SCAPE at ASLA 2022

Oct 31, 2022

At this year’s ASLA Conference on Landscape Architecture in San Francisco, SCAPE is participating in seven panels and one field session.

On Saturday morning, Kate is moderating the 2022 General Session, “The Blue-Green Connection,” with Dr. Ayana Elizabeth Johnson, discussing how landscape architects can build community around climate action—and why ocean justice needs to be part of that future.

2022 marks a particularly exciting year for SCAPE on the West Coast with our recent announcement of a new regional office in San Francisco. To our clients and collaborators across the U.S., we look forward to seeing you in person! For those unable to attend, follow us on Instagram and Twitter for updates.
