ASLA Colorado Chapter
2018 LASN Yearbook

Founded in 1973 under the direction of the American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA), ASLA Colorado advances the profession by advocating the issues that affect members. The association provides professional education and programs and generates overall awareness for landscape architecture to the public through our public relations and government affairs efforts.

In December 2017, ASLA Colorado hosted a Fireside Talk with Austin Troy, PhD Professor and Chair of Urban Design at CU Denver and Principal and co-founder of Spatial Informatics Group, LLC. Troy presented a growing body of research that indicates the occurrence of crime is associated with urban environmental design - particularly the distribution and condition of vegetation. The talk was followed with a lively open-forum discussion. A cozy crowd of 14 gathered to join in the conversation over brews and snacks.

Also in October, ASLA Colorado's Annual Gathering was a night of celebration of our members, awards recipients, council fellows and sponsors. A beautiful fall evening provided the perfect environment to reflect on excellent design work being generated across the chapter.
