leading the way, vol. 25, no.3

“Campus landscapes on Turtle Island are pivotal to decolonizing institutions, moving beyond centralized green lawns to multi-use spaces that are immersive and meaningful, fostering inclusivity through learning, gathering and ceremony.” – Dean Gregory + Vanessa Jukes Strutt, Guest Editors

excellence, vol. 25, no.2

“The projects that rose to the winner’s category have common threads. They are exemplary and/or transformative in their communities and made impacts beyond the project scope. They demonstrate the role of the landscape architect as a leader and key influencer of project outcomes and landscape for the better ...” – Tiina Mack, Jury Chair, 2023 Awards of Excellence

explore, vol. 25, no.1

Industrial tourism is one of the fastest growing segments of the international attraction market. Saturated with museums, zoos and traditional entertainment, many tourists are increasingly looking to delve deeper into tactile experiences that relate directly to their lives and interests. (Cindi Rowan)

The role of identity in placemaking is inherently understood. We strive to build cohesively conceived environments that exude the best qualities of a particular location, reinforcing local natural and cultural heritage. With the rise of experiential tourism, place has become something of a spectacle, harnessed as a means to attract visitors while strengthening local pride-of-place and a desire to welcome visitors with the joy of sharing their way of life (while reaping the economic benefits). (Matt Williams)

equity, vol. 24, no.4

The idea of universal design, which has been talked about for decades, is finally starting to sink in. However, our built environment lags behind. Sidewalks and park pathways are still relatively narrow because the world has been, and continues to be, designed for cars, not people. – Victoria Levak, Halifax-based disability and human rights activist  – 

First and foremost, we must have an unapologetically intersectional lens in policy, planning and design. We should be asking questions such as, “How does a woman move through this space at night? How are we acknowledging land ownership? Can children play here? Is this space accessible to people with disabilities (vision, mobility, hearing, etc.)?” – Lindsay Somers, Executive Director of the Osborne Village Business Improvement Zone (BIZ), Winnipeg) –

blink!, vol. 24, no.3

Blink and the landscape appears; blink again and it is gone. But two blinks might also demarcate an interval of awareness… All landscapes are temporary, and each may hold many temporalities and multiple presents. Like an old camera lens’s click when changed to a different focal length, each blink may signal a different way of seeing a landscape’s time. – Brenda Brown –

excellence 2022, vol. 24, no.2

“One must be taken with the diversity of scope and geography that the profession of landscape architecture in Canada embraces in 2022. There are, of course, winners in the process that are individually remarkable, but the collective statement made by the entire set of submissions is notable.” – George Dark, Jury Chair, 2022 Awards of Excellence

adaptive re-use, vol. 24, no.1

This issue of LANDSCAPES I PAYSAGES features practitioners from across the country who are adaptively re-using and renovating existing landscapes or fine tuning and improving existing communities, parks, gardens and streets to meet the needs of a changing urban landscape. The projects range from large-scale, visionary master plans to built projects; from pragmatic solutions for everyday use to provocative ideas meant to influence our future choices.

reset, vol. 23, no.4

In this issue of LANDSCAPES | PAYSAGES, we invited contributors to imagine how we move forward from the coronavirus pandemic; how we re-adjust, recalibrate and reform our practice under the theme of RESET. Through a range of short-form and in-depth reflections, our contributors delve into this moment of pause and ponder how to design a more adaptive and optimistic world. We welcome your comments!

water's edge, vol 23. no 3

People and water are magically and magnetically connected for many reasons ranging from transportation, recreation and aquaculture to soul-soothing aesthetics. The water’s edge has evolved from a barrier to utilitarian corridor to an irreplaceable experience. It can be different for everyone, but the same for all. Dive in…and enjoy this issue of Landscapes|Paysages.

excellence, vol. 23, no. 2

Through tireless discussion and pondering, this year’s Awards of Excellence jury nailed down 14 submissions for awards. They present Canadian landscape architecture’s achievements, evolving concerns, widening perspectives and ongoing experimentation. They are its present and its possible futures. What better vehicle to show their merits than the Awards issue of Landscapes | Paysages.

technology, vol. 23, no. 1

In this Technology issue, we look at how technology is changing our design process, our construction approach, our palette of materials and the expectations of society for greater communication of design intent. We also explore the potential for technology to disrupt our profession, as it is doing with so many others.

The tools of the future will allow us to create robust simulation capabilities to measure the impacts of our proposals on microclimate, ecological health, hydrology and even social well-being. Join our contributors as they delve into the merging worlds of landscape architecture and technology!

trees, vol. 22, no. 4

Everywhere is urbanized now. And the need for urban infrastructure seems to be diametrically opposed to what trees and living systems need to flourish. How can we bring these two opposite conditions together, perhaps in a way that they could even reinforce each other? Can we bring some of these qualities into the city, instead of having to leave the city to find them?

UPDATE TO LANDSCAPES I PAYSAGES, WINTER 2020 ISSUE

After we released our Winter 2020 (Trees) issue for delivery, we discovered that a key article, “UNE ÎLE, UN PARC ET SON ARBRE”, had a number of important updates that did not make it into the hard-copy issue. Fortunately, we have been able to revise this article in our digital issue - both in the original French version and in the English translation contained in LP+. We apologize to readers and those involved with Park Jean Drapeau for any confusion, and encourage all readers to visit the updated issue, by clicking on the following links.

collaboration, vol. 22, no. 3

Given today’s global challenges, collaborative effort is a necessary response, more effective than working in isolation or competition. Interestingly, woman practitioners feature  prominently in all of these stories of collaborations. The editors of LP wanted to try and uncover the results of non-traditional approaches to see how our members have been collaborating in unique ways and to look for success stories. The net was thrown wide and the results truly were many, varied and surprising. Discover how collaboration not only makes for great projects, but has become even more important in our Covid-world – all in the Fall  2020 issue of LANDSCAPES I PAYSAGES.

excellence, vol 22, no 2

Two things were apparent at this year’s 2020 CSLA Awards of Excellence adjudication: first, the talent behind the submissions and, second, the trends in landscape architecture in Canada. This year, many of the submissions were interesting, intriguing and wonderfully surprising. Decide for yourself as you view the Awards of Excellence winners in the Summer 2020 issue of LANDSCAPES I PAYSAGES.

spirit, vol 22, no 1

It’s a delicate subject. When you say “spiritual” or “sacred,” many people think of organized religion, but others think of more of a personal sensation that one either felt, or didn’t, when in a space. In some places, that feeling is obvious; in others, much subtler. We hope you will enjoy this spirited issue with articles on the memorials, cemeteries, Indigenous sites, backcountry routes and far reaches of the world we find on our life journeys around this troubled globe.

beauty, vol 21, no 4

The concept of beauty is ambiguous and raises many questions about how this concept informs practices in landscape architecture. Check out the Winter 2019 issue of Landscapes I Paysages where we explore the concept of beauty, from a variety of different perspectives.

LO! Carbon, vol 21, no 1

Ten years. Is it enough time to change societal behaviour, to change our behaviour as landscape architects, to make the move to low carbon in our projects, in our designs? There’s hope out there, but we can do more, as we uncover in this Spring 2019 issue of LANDSCAPES I PAYSAGES.

democracy, vol 20, no 3

Big take-away from LANDSCAPES I PAYSAGES Fall 2018 Democracy issue: When creating a space, landscape architects design to meet users’ needs – but, in reality, it’s those users who take the space where it needs to go.

Check out LP’s Awards of Excellence issue, with a stellar project on every page. Variety is the name of the game, from the complex and imaginative planning for Breathe, Edmonton’s green network strategy, to the ecologically sensitive installation of 287 steps through the rugged terrain of the Parliament Hill escarpment. (It’s like climbing a 12-storey building!)

silos, vol 20, no 1

The words on the benches and earthworks emerging on the hilly turf at Fort Needham Memorial Park are few, but they are puzzling – even frightening. “Guncotton.” “Mono-chlorbenzol.” “Trinitrotoluol (TNT).” A century after the Halifax explosion, memories of Canada’s largest explosion are embedded in the landscape. Experiential graphic artists of Form :Media, together with landscape architects of Ekistics Planning & Design, believe in the power of the provocative detail in the landscape, because “discovery can be as effective as a history book.”
