The Graduate Student Design Expo was created two years ago to combine 3 events that have occurred separately for several years:

  • The Arizona ASLA student chapter honor and merit awards competition.
  • The 13th annual Design Excellence is a student-created awards event that features design work from all three disciplines. Submittals were judged by students and professionals.
  • Masters Expo included oral presentations of master’s reports and theses by students in the School of Landscape Architecture and Planning.

Faculty advisors (Margaret Livingston, Landscape Architecture, and Iris Patten, Planning) and student leaders within the programs coordinated all these events. Each year the Expo is expanding, with more students participating from each of the 3 programs in CALA.
