fasla-deutschBarbara Deutsch, ASLA

Congratulations to LAF Executive Director Barbara Deutsch and LAF Board Vice President of Research Forster Ndubisi, who were named Fellows-elect by the American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA). They are among 33 ASLA members designated as Fellows in 2012, in recognition of exceptional accomplishments over a sustained period of time. 

The group will be officially inducted into the ASLA Council of Fellows on Sept 30 during the 2012 ASLA Annual Meeting & Expo in Phoenix. Being named a Fellow is among the highest honors a landscape architect may receive. Fellowship recognizes contributions to the profession and society at large based on their works, leadership and management, knowledge, and service.

Barbara was nominated by the Potomac Chapter in the Leadership/Management Category for her efforts to put the profession at the front and center of collaborative sustainability. Forster, Professor and Head of the Department of Landscape Architecture and Urban Planning at Texas A&M University,  was nominated by the Texas Chapter in the Knowledge Category for his role in finding interconnecting threads in the current cross-disciplinary body of knowledge on sustainability as a scholar, educator, academic practitioner, and distinguished administrator.

Congrats to all 33 Fellows-elect!

    Barbara, thanks for the note on the Lu Ding letter. He is a great young guy and a real talent.
    Seems you have done well for yourself since Seattle. After leaving Seattle, I spent about 7 1/2 years in San Luis Obispo area at Cal Poly before coming up here to Moscow. Very nice here in a very different way. Miss the beautiful ocean beach down the street from me though. You look very good as well. Take care

    This is TERRIFIC...and I can't think of two more deserving people, who have both done amazing things for the profession of Landscape Architecture...and for LAF! These two are two of the hardest working, dedicated, and energetic leaders we have, their passion is contagious, and their contributions numerous. Kudos to ASLA for recognizing these two as Fellows!!!

    Barbara + Forster...thank you so much, for all you do for LAF.


    All the best.chip
