LAF to Hold Informational COVID-19 Related Webinar

Landscape Architecture Practice in a Time of Physical Distancing

A message from LAF reads, "The rapid changes brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic have left us all scrambling to adapt. For design firms, physical distancing measures have altered the way landscape architects work, communicate, and collaborate with coworkers, clients, contractors, and community."

The Landscape Architecture is inviting industry professionals to participate in what they are referring to as "a candid conversation with three landscape architecture principals from a small, mid-sized, and global interdisciplinary firm to hear about the changes they're seeing and techniques they've implemented to maintain communication, productivity, and morale."

The event is scheduled for 1 pm, Eastern Daylight Time on Friday, March 27. The scheduled presenters are:

Brian Jencek

Director of Planning, HOK
Brian is the global director of HOK's Planning practice, leading 75 city planners, urban designers, landscape architects, and environmental scientists in studios located around the world.

Signe Nielsen, FASLA
Principal, MNLA
MNLA focuses on advancing resilience and equity across a spectrum of public and not-for-profit projects. Signe is particularly engaged in projects that seek to change outmoded policies through advocacy, design, and research.

Rebecca Bradley
Co-Founder and Design Principal, Cadence
Rebecca leads strategic development for Cadence, directs day-to-day operations, and performs as project design lead for a variety of project types. Throughout her practice, she works toward the triple bottom line.
The speakers will also speculate about longer-term (non-financial) impacts of this period that might affect the type of work that landscape architects do and how they do it. The webinar will conclude with time for audience Q&A to allow for further exchange of tips, ideas, and perspectives for how to stay healthy, creative, and productive in these unprecedented circumstances.

LAF urges you to share this announcement with any colleagues who may be interested but please be aware that there is a maximum of 500 attendees who can partake in the live webinar, so they are advising you to sign up now for a guaranteed spot. However, a recording of the webinar will be made available on the LAF website by late Friday afternoon.
