On May 22nd, join thought leaders from landscape architecture practice and academia, architecture and planning, horticulture and engineering, municipal agencies and nonprofit organizations and other industry experts at the 4th annual Boston Society of Landscape Architects Conference.

MYKD Design Leader, Bryan Chou, and Adam Anderson of Payette will be giving a talk entitled “Healing Grounds: Landscape Strategies for Contemporary Healthcare Environments.” For many generations, people have understood the relationship between health and contact with natural environments. In the healthcare field, great emphasis has been placed on providing access to healing gardens, meditation spaces and connection to the natural world in meaningful ways. For designers, these spaces can be the most challenging to design, but also the most rewarding. This educational session looks at contemporary healthcare landscapes and how the design of these spaces have responded to advancements in healthcare facilities design.

The all-day conference features a lively mix of workshops and panel discussions around themes of design and planning, horticulture and technology, SITES, and the business of practice.

New this year — the conference is hosted at Northeastern University College of Arts, Media and Design, School of Architecture, and co-sponsored by the Dukakis Center for Urban and Regional Policy.

This event is free for students, with special pricing for emerging professionals, government & nonprofit employees, and group purchases of three or more tickets at once.
