The Landscape Architecture Foundation Summit on Landscape Architecture and the Future will take place at the University of Pennsylvania, June 10-11, 2016. The Summit marks 50 years since Ian McHarg and other leading landscape architects composed LAF's seminal Declaration of Concern, which decried the burgeoning environmental crisis and heralded landscape architecture as critical to help solve it. Building on this legacy, this one-time historic gathering will culminate in a redrafting of the original 1966 Declaration of Concern and a landmark publication of the ideas presented. Registration is open now.
