Conversations with Leaders in Landscape
From Ian McHarg and the LAF Founders to our current Board members, program participants, supporters, and scholarship winners, LAF continues to bring together the thought leadership of established and emerging leaders in landscape architecture and allied professions.
Their knowledge, energy, and inspiration are invaluable for the profession and LAF’s mission of advancing sustainable design. Our Conversations with Leaders in Landscape initiative offers a platform to share some of these insights.
