Peter D. Briggs graduated from the University of Guelph in 1996 with a Bachelor of Science in Environmental Protection (minor in Ecology). He received a Master of Landscape Architecture degree in 1999 from the University of Guelph, receiving the Victor Chanasyk Medal for professionalism. He is a member of the Northwest Territories Association of Landscape Architects and the American Society of Landscape Architects. Peter founded his company Corvus Design in 2006 in Anchorage Alaska, and has grown it to be the largest landscape architecture firm based in the North. He appreciates that when you live in the North, a small company can be called “the largest”.
He served as the NWTALA representative to the CSLA board for six years prior to serving as president of the Society. One of the highpoints of his career has been serving as president, and being allowed to bring his excitement about the landscape architecture profession to the leadership of the CSLA and experience the amazing initiatives and projects our members are accomplishing. Having sat on a number of committees and CSLA efforts, his personal highlights include: over ten years on the LANDSCAPES | PAYSAGES editorial board (with great pride in what has been accomplished with our magazine by the volunteers that produce it), sitting on the World Landscape Architecture Month committee since its inception, and chairing the committee for the Society’s recent strategic plan update. He has also served as president for the Alaska Chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architects, and been involved at the local and national level in the US. He sees great things for landscape architecture and is proud of what the Canadian Society of Landscape Architects has accomplished, and will continue to accomplish.
