“More than ever, we are looking forward to this opportunity for fellowship with our clients and peers, focusing on the crucial role that landscape architects will play as the world recovers from this global crisis,” commented Michael Grove, ASLA, Chair of Landscape Architecture, Civil Engineering, and Ecology. “Even in the midst of this unprecedented pandemic, there are glimmers of hope as we experience drastic reductions in pollution, louder calls for habitat conservation, and renewed public interest in the importance of parks and public space for planetary health and personal well-being. The future of landscape architecture is strong, and Sasaki is proud to be at the forefront of the profession.”
