Carol Craig - The Devil is in the Details

About the Congress - The CSLA is partnering with the Manitoba Associaton of Landscape Architects for the 2016 Congress. It will be held at the Fort Garry Hotel, Spa and Conference Centre in Winnipeg, Manitoba, from June 23rd to June 25th, 2016.

The theme for the 2016 Congress is:

Home: locally inspired

Bringing the focus back to the local, this Congress will ask individuals to contemplate the influences of our work as landscape architects and its effects on the communities that we serve in order to improve all of our lives. How do we design/build our home for ourselves or for others? At what scale do we perceive our home and our community, and what influences it? What does it mean to call a place our home?
