LAEP Speaker Series: Allysia Angus

Lecture/Readings

Lecture Title: Tales from the Field of a 20+ Year Bureau of Land Management Career About the Lecture: Allysia is one of fewer than a handful of professionals who hold the title of landscape architect among the Bureau of Land Management workforce of fewer than 10,000 employees. The BLM manages almost a quarter billion acres of public lands (1/10 of US land base) - far more than any other federal land management agency - that span from the Pacific Coast across the deserts and rangelands of the Intermountain West to the Rocky Mountains. She will share successes and challenges from her more than 20 years of working on projects large and small, from her local district (which includes Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument and the Kanab Field Office) in southcentral Utah to as far flung as Alaska. During her public service career, Allysia has had a hand in land use planning, recreation site planning and design, visual resource management, research, interpretive projects, and a host of other random work.

LAEP Speaker Series: Sean Michael

Lecture/Readings

Private practice in landscape architecture is highly competitive, with firms of many sizes and disciplines vying for the same contracts. For firms to survive in crowded, talent-rich markets, they must provide valuable design and planning services while maintaining the profitability of their office(s). Without exception, both of these demands must be met if a sustainable practice is sought. This talk explains the significance of business practices in the minds of practitioners, sharing results from a 2021 study of one of the oldest and most successful firms in North America.

LAEP Speaker Series: Marc Ryan

Lecture/Readings

Lecture Title: Re-Grounding: The Practice of PUBLIC WORK About the Lecture: Marc will discuss the recent work of PUBLIC WORK, the studio he co-founded based in Toronto, Canada. Toronto has served as both a laboratory and inspiration for exploring the complex processes of building a city in which the public realm is central to its quality of life. The ambiguous identity of Toronto’s cityscape at the beginning of the 21st century leaves space for the re-articulation and design of the public realm, a chance to make source landscapes more vivid in the city and re-engage the civic imagination through landscape. In this talk, Marc will explore some of the themes which drive the work of the practice and share recent projects.

LAEP Vern Budge Lecture: Billy Fleming

Lecture/Readings

Lecture Title: Green Dreams, or Whatever About the Lecture: This lecture will explore the multi-year, "Designing a Green New Deal" initiative within the McHarg Center, including projects like "An Atlas for the Green New Deal," "Field Notes Toward an Internationalist Green New Deal," the "Green New Deal Superstudio," and the action research think tank known as the Climate + Community Project. At the core of each is a shared question: how might we make our institutions and the academy more useful to the climate justice movement?
