Each year Landscape Forms invites one university to host a multi-disciplinary design charrette, Xtreme LA. Two teams made up of the best-in-class young professionals and masters level students work under the guidance of prominent landscape architects. This year the event will take place at K-State on Oct. 7-9, 2014. Eligible students must be in their final year of study and be nominated by an APDesign faculty member. The 13 students who are selected will need to be able to commit to the full event. For more information about past Xtreme LA events click here. Please complete this nomination form and submit it to or in Seaton 302 by the end of the day Friday, Sept. 12.
