TAKE A PICTURE! | Canadian Landscape Portfolio 2nd edition


Submissions for the 2nd edition of the Canadian Landscape PORTFOLIO are now being accepted at: 

The striking first edition of the Canadian Landscape Portfolio was unveiled this summer at the 2016 CSLA Congress in Winnipeg.  This first edition invited Canadian landscape architects to share their Favorite Significant Landscapes, not only the exceptional ones but those that are part of our everyday activities. 

The second edition seeks to capture Canadian landscapes modified through human interventions, from the simplest to the more complex and abstract… Canadian landscape architects are invited to share their perceptions of landscape by participating in the Canadian Landscape Portfolio.  Photo submissions are being accepted for both PORTFOLIO editions at now. 

The Canadian Landscape Portfolio received a 2015 and 2016 Grant from LACF in support of this project. Visit our GRANTS PORTFOLIO ARCHIVE #116 and #123 to view the original projects. 

LACF and CSLA are proud partners in supporting this project.
