ARCHITECTURE CAREER DISCOVERY RESOURCES
NOW AVAILABLE ONLINE
WASHINGTON, DC, February 7, 2005---In response
to the overwhelming demand for landscape architecture services
across the US and around the world, the American Society of
Landscape Architects (ASLA) has developed a new
web area featuring information on how to become
a landscape architect.
The main career discovery web page links to rich resources
for students of all ages, educators, guidance counselors,
parents, and other interested parties to explore the profession
of landscape architecture. A new,
four-color brochure targeting middle and high
school students is now available and downloadable from the
web site at no charge in .pdf format. The brochure includes:
- Information on what landscape architecture
is and what landscape architects do;
- Personal testimonials from landscape architects
in different types of practice and areas of the country;
- Photos of award-winning landscape architecture
- How to become a landscape architect;
- How much landscape architects earn; and
- A quick quiz to help students determine if
landscape architecture is right for them.
Founded in 1899, ASLA is the national professional association
for landscape architects representing more than 15,000 members.
Landscape architecture is a comprehensive discipline of land
analysis, planning, design, management, preservation, and
rehabilitation. ASLA promotes the landscape architecture profession
and advances the practice through advocacy, education, communication,
and fellowship. More information on landscape architecture
is available on the web at www.asla.org.
