Firms of the Midwest

Editors Steve Kelly, Alli Martin and Michael Miyamoto

With the ASLA Expo/annual meeting this year in Chicago, LASN presents the landscape architectural work of firms in the Midwest: Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota and Wisconsin.

This magazine will be distributed at the ASLA Expo at McCormick Place in Chicago, Nov. 7-8, 2015.

Thirty firms participated this year in presenting their project work. We asked the firms to send us a short biographical profile, plus photography of at least three projects, with a brief description of the design work for each project. We let the firms speak for themselves in their profiles and in describing the projects, although we did edit to fit the space.

We selected the images we thought best represented each project. As there wasn't room in the magazine to publish all the individual project photos submitted by the firms, LASN has made those available at, and in the digital magazine. The unique five-digit number below each firm profile is a clickable link in the digital magazine to the firm's profile and all the project images (iPad compatible). That number is also the search criterion to take you to the firm's profile at

Thank you, Firms of the Midwest for participating! We look forward to seeing you in Chicago.

Coming in 2016: The ASLA Expo was in New Orleans in 2003. It was a memorable time, particularly as the show coincided with Halloween. Imaging the French Quarter on that night! In honor of the show returning to New Orleans, LASN will present in the October 2016 issue the "Firms of the Deep South": Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana and South Carolina.
