The PA-DE Chapter’s commemorative publication 75 Years is now available through Amazon and the ASLA bookstore.
We chose to celebrate our 75th anniversary by compiling chapter archives and over 100 articles recognizing significant people, places, and events that have shaped the profession of Landscape Architecture in Pennsylvania and Delaware. More than 60 individuals and firms, all six institutions in PA and DE offering degrees in Landscape Architecture, our chapter leadership and 16 generous sponsors contributed to this effort. The document was expertly edited by Susan M. Rademacher, Honorary ASLA, former Editor in Chief of Landscape Architecture magazine. The result is a very good account of the Chapter’s history.
Included are articles chronicling the pursuit of licensure in both states, the stewardship of our land and resources, biographies of our mentors, and reflections on some of our treasured spaces. Beautiful photography punctuates the book and helps tell the story. Articles by our Chapter President, Baldev Lamba and Trustee, Lisa Kunst Vavro challenge us to take these lessons learned and apply them to our future endeavors.
