08.17.11 Designed by a Landscape Architect

img0842-sLAF staff spent a gorgeous afternoon at the Washington Monument in Washington DC, raising awareness about the landscape architecture profession as part of ASLA’s The Understory campaign, which mobilized thousands of landscape architects to plan activities across the country.

Armed with flyers and photos of the site before the award-winning redesign of the grounds, staff spoke with young people, DC residents, park staff, and visitors from across the U.S. and as far away as Australia and India, educating them on what landscape architects do and the key role they played in elegantly incorporating post-9/11 security measures in Washington DC.
