Conference: Xtreme LA Challenge

Each year a select group of landscape architects and students gather for a two-day design charrette aptly named XTREME LA. The event, co-sponsored by the Landscape Architecture Foundation and Landscape Forms, provides an intense creative experience focused on a critical landscape planning and design challenge.

 

Roberto Rovira  was invited to be a part of the 2018 “XREME LA CHALLENGE” which is a yearly three-day design charrette for a select group of landscape architects and students. The event is completely funded by the Landscape Architecture Foundation (of which I am a board member) and Landscape Forms, and brings together leading practitioners from around the country. It’s a great opportunity to get national exposure for our programs and is described as “an intense creative experience focused on a critical landscape planning and design challenge.” The projects in the past have ranged from coastal to cultural landscapes and infrastructure topics. I am proposing that we develop a project in Miami Beach dealing with extreme weather and will be working on a brief for next week. 15 LAEUD students would be selected to team up with 15 practitioners from around the country we would create 2 teams (1/2 students and 1/2 practitioners).
