ASLA Opposes Executive Order on Design Mandates

United States Federal Courthouse. Seattle, Washington. PWP Landscape Architecture.

The American Society of Landscape Architects President Wendy Miller, FASLA, issued the following statement February 7, 2020, on a proposed Executive Order to impose uniform design mandates on federal architecture:

"The American Society of Landscape Architects has profound concerns about a proposed executive order that would impose uniform style mandates on federal building projects. Our nation’s design professionals are admired around the world for their creativity, innovation, and diversity of thought. Designers of the built environment should not be confined by arbitrary constraints that would limit federal building projects to a single style. ASLA believes that the public interest is best served by a collaborative place-based process that continues to produce federal projects that reflect the unique needs and values of each community and its citizens."
