Our 2024 Congress Theme is: Origins | Evolution | Revolution

The profession of landscape architecture has come a long way since its origins. The way we design and manage the built environment has evolved significantly. In the decades since the CSLA was founded in 1934 and the MALA was founded in 1974, the profession of landscape architecture has held a unique responsibility in helping shape the world sustainably and equitably. As we reflect on the fundamental principles that underlie the profession, we have an opportunity to explore how these can be adapted to address the complex challenges of the 21st century.

In setting our future course, we must recognize that the world is changing at an unprecedented pace. The impacts of climate change, social inequality, Truth and Reconciliation and political instability are becoming increasingly apparent. Our profession must rise to the challenge and find innovative ways to design the built environment in a way that is resilient, sustainable, and just.

At the 2024 CSLA-MALA Congress, we will celebrate the CSLA’s 90th anniversary and the MALA’s 50th anniversary by exploring topics that have led it to where we are today, and that are central to its future:

  • What can we learn from the profession’s evolution over the past 90 years?
  • How can new technologies, such as artificial intelligence and virtual reality, be harnessed to enhance the design process and provide critical insights into past works?
  • What is the importance of community engagement in creating inclusive and equitable public spaces?
  • What is the role of landscape architecture in promoting biodiversity and mitigating the impacts of climate change?

At the heart of the 2024 CSLA-MALA Congress is the recognition that landscape architecture is a collaborative endeavor that has always been about creating spaces that are both functional and beautiful. By exploring our origins and imagining the future of our profession, landscape architects can create a world that is sustainable, equitable, and inspiring.
