OF INTEREST
Landscape Performance Education Grants
To help landscape architecture programs integrate landscape performance into their curriculum, LAF is offering five $2,500 mini-grants to faculty for the Fall 2016 term/semester. Participating faculty will work with LAF to develop and test models for integrating landscape performance into landscape architecture course offerings, such as research and methods, site planning and analysis, design studios, and other lecture or seminar courses. Materials developed through the grants will be shared on the Resources for Educators section of LandscapePerformance.org, ´╗┐which includes assignments, syllabi, faculty reflections, and other resources to help bring landscape performance into the classroom. Landscape performance is one of the Professional Curriculum topics in the revised 2016 LAAB Accreditation Standards.
Applications due: June 15, 2016
