Roundtable - Leaders in Landscape Architecture Assess the Profession

Moderated By Edward Uhlir, Director of Millennium Park

On May 11, 2010 twenty four leaders in landscape architecture gathered at the Elysian Hotel in Chicago for a moderated roundtable discussion sponsored by Landscape Forms and the Landscape Architecture Foundation.

The purpose was to share ideas on how current economic realities are impacting landscape architecture practice, how firms are responding to the challenge, and how participants see the prospects for the profession. Guests came from fifteen states and all regions of the country, from small proprietor-led practices and large interdisciplinary firms. Hosts for the event were Bill Main, President, Landscape Forms and Barbara Deutsch, Executive Director, Landscape Architecture Foundation. The roundtable was moderated by Edward Uhlir, the Director of Chicago's Millennium Park, who oversaw construction and completion of the widely celebrated 24-acre park, coordinating the efforts of numerous design teams, and acting as a liaison to municipal agencies and the philanthropic community.
