Your Land is a one-time publication produced in response to a rising interest among ASLA members to introduce the profession of landscape architecture to a wide range of people that may not yet know the incredible range of work being done by landscape architects.
“This notion of the countryside as romantic, bucolic, something that is unaffected by design no longer exists,” says Mohsen Mostafavi in an interview with urbanNext at the 2016 Venice Biennale, “Everything … is artificial, everything is a subject of transformation and a subject of design.”
“Landscape architects are broad thinkers addressing global issues such as climate change, water shortages, sustainable communities and the prevention of hunger. They are natural leaders with the ability to communicate through different professions and lead multidisciplinary projects.”
“This is a time in human history when landscape architecture has something really important to say. We should listen. Landscape architects practice a discipline rooted in holistic thinking. They understand the natural environment, the built environment, and the interface between them. And they are ideally prepared to take leadership in shaping outdoor spaces and framing public awareness about them.”
