Fifty years ago, the Landscape Architecture Foundation’s founders, alarmed by unchecked development and rampant pollution, established the Foundation in recognition of the unique skills of landscape architects to address the environmental crisis. Fifty years later, environmental issues have intensified with increased urbanization, species extinction, and climate change and adaptation, making the need for sustainable landscape solutions greater than ever.

LAF marked its half-century commitment to the environment with its 50 & Forward Campaign to expand existing programs and support new initiatives that will increase the capacity of the profession to meet the demands of the 21st century.

The 50 & Forward Campaign will have a lasting impact on the greater landscape architecture community. Through the creation of new programs and the expansion of existing ones, the campaign will allow LAF to:

  • Double annual support for students to diversify the pool of talent and increase academic opportunity
  • Lead a forum for practicing landscape architects to share innovative and entrepreneurial approaches and make the research ideas accessible to all
  • Invest in new research, which will benefit non-profit organizations, community leaders, and advocates as they make the case for more environmentally friendly policies and solutions
  • Expand research grants and stipends for academics and landscape architecture programs as they prepare the next generation of landscape architects
  • Increase investment in the profession to broaden and deepen the pool of talent, drive innovation for improved practices and create new business opportunities for the landscape industry

  • Expand capacity to communicate the value of landscape architecture and exemplary design
