World Landscape Architecture Month 2013

LET´S CELEBRATE THE LANDSCAPE ARCHITECTURE MONTH IN NEW ZEALAND!
“SHARED WISDOM IN AN AGE OF CHANGE”

How?

Easy! We are inspired by this year World Congress theme and by the fact that current approaches to management of our landscape can no longer be sustained. We are interested in photographs that show our CHANGING LANDSCAPE THROUGH MULTIPLE DIMENSIONS OF WISDOM:

“Whether exploring ancient wisdom, reaching across realms of contemporary knowledge, or imagining a more resilient future, shared wisdom strengthens our ability to effect positive change”
