The Boston Society of Landscape Architects is pleased to announce that the 2019 BSLA Conference will take place on Wednesday, May 22, 2019.
New this year — it will be hosted at Northeastern University College of Arts, Media and Design, School of Architecture, and co-sponsored by the Dukakis Center for Urban and Regional Policy. A special thank you to returning collaborating partner Victor Stanley.
New this year —
the Conference will focus on educational sessions, networking, and interdisciplinary learning. Sponsors
are very much needed, and will be celebrated with multiple opportunities to share work and connect with the industry. That said, this venue is different; vendors who wish to create large trade show-type exhibits are encouraged to join the BSLA landscape pavilion at ABX. (Contact [email protected]
New this year — the Conference day will conclude with the 2019 BSLA Design Awards Gala, held that same evening — Wednesday, May 22 — also at Northeastern University.
The BSLA Conference is an all-day event that will feature a lively mix of site tours and professional workshops, speakers and discussions — in all, 15-20 sessions total. All sessions will be submitted for LA CES and AIA continuing education credits.
Until March 31, 2019, BSLA is accepting proposals for workshops and site tours.
We seek excellence and thought leadership, and proposals that reflect and extend the diversity of landscape architecture ideas, people, and practice.
The conference will generally organize sessions into the overall categories of plants and horticulture; urban design & planning; site-specific design; social impact; and the business of practice. We especially encourage proposals that dive deeper into themes of equity and resilience at all scales — backyard to watershed — and that expand and shed new light on familiar conversations.
Panels and workshops that involve speakers and themes from multiple perspectives, backgrounds, and sectors are encouraged. Any and all are invited to submit proposals — emerging as well as established professionals, community and municipal partners as well as colleagues from other disciplines and from places well beyond Boston.
