The third edition of the Canadian Landscapes Portfolio like the first and second editions, is an online set of Collections showing the immense diversity of the landscapes from all provinces and territories. One main difference is that one gallery will aim at showing landscapes from the entire world. This edition is an invitation to all landscape architects (CSLA and IFLA members) which will collect entries from the submission form
or from Instagram
The Portfolio’s third edition focus is on landscapes that fulfill our fundamental needs in exceptional ways. The images might be natural or designed, simple or highly sophisticated, urban or forested. They are the “Landscapes that fill our Dreams” but in which we live and work…
Once again, it is time to pause and seize these “Dreamed” landscapes, those that, day in and day out, contribute to making our lives more enjoyable and/or efficient.
In the end, they become our favourite landscapes...
For the third edition, Canadian (CSLA) and International (IFLA) Landscape Architects and students registered in landscape architecture programs are invited to participate using the Submission form
This edition of the Portfolio is in continuity with the first and second edition which were aiming at illustrating the Canadian Landscapes Charter's precepts that all landscapes are:
- Of public interest, entailing various dimensions ranging from culture to ecology and economy.
- Favourable to viable economic activities with appropriate means of interventions.
- Integral to the Canadian identity and its diverse cultures.
- Naturally in constant change, with many under economic stresses.
- A major contributor to the quality of life for all people living in all types of settings
To illustrate the emphasis placed by the CLC on the rich diversity of Canadian, and now the entire world, landscapes, the third edition will add a gallery of images composed of digital collections representing Canada’s diversity and the world by regions - America, Europe, Africa, Asia-Pacific.
The “Dreamed Landscapes" galleries will be added to the already existing "Significant and Designed Landscapes".
