Help Us Take the Prize!

Vote for ASLA! ASLA’s website, Designing Our Future: Sustainable Landscapes, has been nominated for a Webby, the most prestigious award for all things online. We need your help to win the People’s Voice Award. ASLA is currently in 2nd place.

The website is an online exhibition highlighting real-life examples of sustainable landscape design and its positive effects on the environment and quality of life. These spaces use natural systems to clean the air and water, restore habitats, create healthy communities, and ultimately provide significant economic, social, and environmental value.

A total of 30 case studies illustrate just what sustainable landscapes are and how they provide important benefits on a variety of scales. In the process, the case studies, written in clear, understandable language, also introduce users to what exactly landscape architects do.

The website also features 10 animations created by Daniel Tal, ASLA, using SketchUp, which have been watched more than 150,000 times so far. The most recent animation, Designing Neighborhoods for People and Wildlife, explains how to transform your property into a real wildlife habitat. Learn how native plants and designed structures provide what nature needs.

Animations also include companion guides — sustainability education resources that enable users, including teachers, to explore sustainable design concepts in greater depth.

This project was made possible through a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts.

Vote for ASLA before April 24. You'll make the difference.
