2016 WASLA Conference – Imagine Tomorrow

Where will the future take us, and what role will the landscape architect play?

While humankind trends dangerously toward natural resource extinction, recent breakthroughs in science and technology has propelled never before seen advances in efficient and sustainable existence. Are we headed toward doom or deliverance? What does our future have in store? What do you Imagine for Tomorrow?
