Updates from ASLA

Write for The Field

Each of ASLA's 20 Professional Practice Networks (PPNs) contributes to The Field, a blog that was created to give members who work in landscape architecture a place to exchange information, learn about recent work and research, and share their thoughts about current happenings.

All ASLA members are invited to submit posts for The Field, and we invite you to join the conversation!

A few ideas to help get you started:

• Interviews with other landscape architects and allied professionals
• An exciting project you’d like to share
• Your thoughts on a conference, lecture, or exhibition you attended
• Book reviews
• Lessons learned on a recent project
• New research, tools, or technology you think other members should know about
• Your reaction to a project you visited.

In future pieces in LAND, we’ll be rounding up recent posts on The Field you may have missed. If you’d like to receive email notifications as soon as new posts are published, sign up to follow The Field—look for “The Field by Email” box on the right-hand side.
