World Landscape Architecture Month is the month long celebration of landscape architecture and the design of public and private spaces. Similar to last year, each ASLA member will receive a wallet sized card to use on social media. This year it reads “This Is Landscape Architecture”. All you have to do is take pictures with the card in the image and then share on social media using #WLAM2016. Last year, a similar “Designed by a Landscape Architect” WLAM social media initiative generated almost 4,000 posts and reach over 3 million people! This year, the message is broadened to “This is Landscape Architecture” which opens the narrative potential to include design process photos, public workshops, construction photos, and other elements of our practice. This month is our opportunity to show the world what we do. The power to share that narrative is in the hands of every ASLA member and its just one social media post away! ASLA will showcase all of these efforts to create a national story that promotes the landscape architecture profession.

‘This Is Landscape Architecture’ Social Media Campaign

April is World Landscape Architecture Month, and ASLA has improved on last year’s “Designed by a Landscape Architect” campaign to launch “This Is Landscape Architecture”.  The concept is as easy and fun as it is powerful.

The idea: For landscape architects across the globe to take photos of their work and their design process, along with a wallet-sized card that reads “This Is Landscape Architecture,” and then share them on social media using #WLAM2016.

The goal: To celebrate the work and importance of our profession across the globe.

Our request: For all of our members to participate! This is a great way for us to show off our own landscape architecture work on a global scale. ASLA has more information on how to participate on asla.org/wlam.

The sharing begins on April 1 – let’s take advantage of this opportunity to shine!

DON’T HAVE YOUR CARD YET? It will arrive with your April Landscape Architecture Magazine. We’ve also created an easy-to-use digital template (InDesign and Photoshop) that we can share with you. These templates allow you to superimpose the “This is Landscape Architecture” card onto images you’ve already taken! It’s super easy to do and allows you to utilize the great imagery you already have. Send communications@asla-sierra.org a quick email and we’ll be happy to send you the files!
