Virginia Burt to speak at 2015 South Carolina ASLA Conference
Burlington, Ontario (September 30, 2015): Virginia Burt will be speaking at the South Carolina Chapter (SCASLA) of the American Society of Landscape Architects Annual Conference on October 16th, 2015.
With healing gardens being developed in healthcare facilities across North America, this session will examine what it takes to move from the “BIG idea” to detailed implementation and how “eye sparkling” implementation techniques can encourage development of meaningful projects. Techniques, spaces and materials used in healing gardens will be discussed discovering the ways and means of relating the whole to the smallest spaces. As landscape architects, we affect the experiences of people as they move through spaces – ideally this experience is a positive one of magic and wonder. Come prepared to take a journey of the heart and be inspired.
Mission of the American Society of Landscape Architects “is the advancement of the art and science of Landscape Architecture by leading and informing the public, by serving members, and by leading the profession in achieving quality in the natural and built environment”.
