Celebrating Black Design Excellence During Black History Month


This month, ASLA is pleased to host Design Excellence by Black Landscape Architects, a social media campaign celebrating African American landscape architects and their valuable contributions to the profession as part of Black History Month.

“This will be the third year that ASLA has made a special effort to recognize Black landscape architects, members and non-members, around the world. We're working to bring some much-overdue attention to the talented and growing community of professionals who are expanding and enhancing this profession–and doing so in ways that elevate the practice, challenge the norm, and innovate design," said ASLA CEO Torey Carter-Conneen.

Learn more about Black landscape architects making strides in the profession and design projects that exemplify excellence on ASLA social media channels including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and LinkedIn, with the hashtag #BlackDesignExcellence.
