Opportunities: Suburbia Transformed 3.0
ASLA’s Opportunities and Events page provides users with the latest information on everything from conferences and meetings to calls for papers, requests for qualifications, consulting opportunities, and competitions. Below, an international competition to promote residential designs that go beyond “green.”
Suburbia Transformed 3.0, One Garden at a Time
- Exploring the aesthetics of landscape experience in the age of sustainability.
- An international competition for built and visionary (unbuilt) residential landscapes in professional and student categories—entry forms due February 18, 2014.
The goal of Suburbia Transformed 3.0 is to promote and celebrate residential designs that go beyond “green” by explicitly using sustainable strategies, tactics, and technologies to enrich the aesthetic spatial experience of people. The emphasis is on how such sustainable landscapes can be beautiful, inspiring, perhaps profound; and serve as examples for transforming the suburban residential fabric, one garden at a time.
