“ACE Legacy Project is a great opportunity to introduce our profession to a younger generation. The students involved learn about landscape architecture by working on a real-life design problem. They receive feedback from the leading design and construction professionals of our region and learn digital drawing skills from our [Florida International University] Landscape Architecture students. It’s been very rewarding to witness all these intergenerational exchanges.” ‑ ASLA 2020 Ace Legacy Project video


Ebru Ozer is an inspiring volunteer leader who is committed to bringing the profession to people. The impacts of her dedication and volunteer service have achieved lasting results: the successful process and implementation of the ACE Legacy Project in Miami, her sustained engagement in ASLA at a national, state, and local level, her leadership with the Council of Educators in Landscape Architecture, and her service as Treasurer for the Council of Educators in Landscape Architecture (CELA) from 2019-2021. Notably, Ozer played a crucial leadership role in the development of Future Landscape Architects of America (FLAA), a non-profit created in 2015 to promote landscape architecture within K-12 schools. FLAA started off as a grassroots effort focused on underprivileged students and underfunded schools in Palm Beach County, FL. Thanks to Ozer’s leadership and commitment, it now reaches 3,000 students in over 40 schools, non-profits, and community groups throughout the country. Ozer is an Associate Professor in the Department of Landscape Architecture + Environmental and Urban Design at the College of Architecture and The Arts at Florida International University (FIU), where she is a member of the FIU President’s University Sustainability Committee and serves on the FIU GIS Advisory Committee. Her research has been supported by grants from the National Landscape Architecture Foundation, The United States Department of Education, Florida Department of Transportation, City of Sweetwater, The Metropolitan Center at FIU, the Cejas Family Foundation, the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, and The Wolfsonian-FIU. She is also a co-author of Best Practices in Sustainable Building Design (2012).
