SUPPORT URI & RISD!!

Dear Friends,

I reach out to you about an important issue for Landscape Architecture in the state of Rhode Island. Each year, DesignIntelligence (DI) by Greenway Communications conducts a survey to rank landscape architecture schools that is distributed to professionals in landscape architecture and design firms.

We have two phenomenal programs of landscape architecture in this state: an MLA program at RISD and a BLA program at URI.  We would like to make sure that these programs remain and prosper!

Please take a moment to complete the DI survey to help ensure that your opinions are registered. The survey closes TODAY – Friday, June 10, 2016. We truly hope you can participate in this opportunity.

You may respond using the online survey for Landscape Architecture.

This year’s statewide preservation conference considers the distinctive sense of place and culture in South County and looks at the social, economic, and cultural history expressed by the built environment.
