The Oregon Chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architects is seeking presenters for its annual
symposium on June 15th, 2013 in Portland, Oregon.
The theme of the 2013 symposium is “The Nature of Space”. The nature of space is fundamental to how we
design, interpret and plan living environments. This symposium seeks to address current trends, issues and
research on transformative spaces, adaptive reuse, spatial planning in landscape ecology, urban interventions
and evolving issues related to how we perceive and interact with the environment.
The symposium includes three session timeslots, with two concurrent sessions during each timeslot for a total
of six potential sessions. ASLA Oregon is seeking 90‐ minute sessions that explore this theme using a variety of
formats: panel discussions, presentations, interactive dialogues. Multi‐disciplinary sessions are encouraged,
but not required.
Continuing education credits will be pursued. Session rooms will be equipped with projection equipment, and
are set up lecture‐style. Presenters are provided complementary symposium registration.
For questions, contact the Sessions Organizer, Melinda Graham, President‐Elect, Oregon ASLA at
