Okay, the charette being organized is not your typical charette. First, it will not address a specific site. Instead the end result will be a pattern-book with elements that can be combined to implement green principles while developing the regional plan. Second, the charette participants will all be uniquely aware of the issues at hand as we will all be either Landscape Architects or ASLA members and possibly a few other allied professionals with substantial knowledge in key categories. Now the table leaders that are going to lead all of these professionals at the charette are meeting at the Charette Programing Meeting to develop a problem statement for the charette, among other things. Our question to you is, “What do you want to charette?” We open the floor to you now to glean insight from participants who might not be at the charette programming meeting, but, who’s voices are just as important as those who are. Hopefully this post will create a thread that is full of thoughtful and thought provoking ideas. Please comment below and let your ideas be heard. Remember this charette is ours. We are creating an ASLA branded publication that we want every member to be able to claim and be proud of, so throw out new ideas, rehash old ones and lets really create an innovative atmosphere for creativity to occur!
The Florida Chapter ASLA has been asked by
myregion.org and their “How Shall We Grow?” initiative to help create
new language, new governance and visuals
to serve as patterns to develop the regional plan.
To coincide with
National Landscape Architecture Month
We will hold a charette for:
A Regional Pattern Book
April 28, 2007
Landscape Architects and ASLA members will work
together at this charette,
which will result in
A Regional Pattern Book
based on ideas of
Smart, Sustainable Growth.
We need several dedicated people
with great motivational and organizational skills
as Table Leaders for the charette!
Those willing to volunteer for this position
will need to attend a
Pre-Charette Programming Meeting
Feb. 24, 2007- 9:30 am -1:30 pm
Cypress Room of the Downtown Orange County Library
If you are interested please RSVP or send questions to
