Dear friends and colleagues,
There are quite a few events happening during the month of April that we would like to bring to your attention.
First, and foremost, we would like to encourage you to attend the Oregon ASLA Symposium on April 21. Due to this event falling in the same week we would normally hold our section meeting, we are opting to cancel our meeting in the hope that you will be even more likely to venture up to Portland for this wonderful Saturday happening.
The annual HOPES conference is taking place once again on the University of Oregon campus April 13 & 14, with some very interesting speakers. The theme this year is DIRT. Diana Balmori speaks on April 13 and Walter Hood speaks April 14. See http://hopes.uoregon.edu/ for more information.
Jeff Howe will be speaking at the University of Oregon on April 27 at 4:00 pm. Paula Morgan is scheduled to speak May 25 at noon. More details to follow.
Mid-term studio reviews in Lawrence Hall are scheduled for early May; please contact the UO Department of Landscape Architecture if you would like to offer yourself as a reviewer. Ron Lovinger is teaching a studio on the “butterfly” parking structure within our downtown park blocks, and there might be a different topic to suit your fancy. Remember; hours spent in the classroom can be applied to some of your your PDH requirements.
We are looking forward to better weather this summer and would like to prime you to start thinking about projects tours. What do you want to see? What can you offer? Please keep this in mind as we plow through the next couple of months at warp speed.
