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. The event gets underway at Wickford Middle School with a keynote speech on how the institution of slavery indelibly shaped South County. The speech is followed by 12 workshops, 3 walking tours, 3 boat tours, and 7 bus tours of historic places in Exeter and North Kingstown, including farms, factories, houses, wharves, cemeteries, museums, and the former studio of architect William D. Warner FAIA. Presented by the R.I. Historical Preservation & Heritage Commission, the annual conference is a great opportunity to explore the field of historic preservation and network with professionals in the field.
For more information (and to register), visit http://www.preservation.ri.gov/conference/16overview.php or call (401)222-2078. Pre-registration is open until April 20; on-site registration will be available on April 30.
