Landscapes - Fall 2015 - (Page 55)

GUELPH'S EVOLUTION SIGNPOST BY KAREN LANDMAN + SEAN KELLY LA AT GUELPH TURNS 50! EN_THIS YEAR, the Landscape Architecture community is celebrating 50 years of LA at the University of Guelph. Five decades of design training is rooted within the rich traditions of the Ontario Agriculture College (OAC), where ornamental horticulture has been taught since OAC's founding in 1874. Landscape design, however, was not an important part of this training. Over time, increasing numbers of OAC graduates completed post-graduate landscape architecture degrees in the U.S. and brought their skills and knowledge back to Canada. Eventually, in pursuit of homegrown LA training and education, the Canadian Society of Landscape Architects lobbied Canadian academic institutions to establish landscape architecture programs. In 1960, the Ontario Landscape Contractors Association invited the CSLA to join them in meeting with several institutions to discuss the establishment of a program. At the meeting, Dr. R. J. Hilton, Guelph's Chair of Horticultural Science, indicated support for the appointment of a landscape architect as a first step. Victor Chanasyk was subsequently appointed in 1962 - the first university appointment of a landscape architect in Canada - to develop and launch a Bachelor of Landscape Architecture program that would be both a liberal and professional education. The University Senate approved the BLA in 1964. In 1974, the University launched the Master of Landscape Architecture program, the second in Canada and the first in Ontario. continues to receive many requests for help with design projects. Decades of students have left their design mark in the surrounding landscape and beyond. LA students have also been very active in international academic exchanges, participating in other LA programs around the world. Guelph graduates, too, reach out to new generations of students, building a connection with the profession via studio critiques, internships and employment upon graduation. In preparing for the LA50 event, we put out a call to alumni for a logo that would represent our history, where we are now and where we hope to go. From the 25 submissions, the planning committee selected one by Landscape Architect David Duhan and adopted Dave's logo theme of "evolution" for the LA50 event. Please check out the homecoming weekend we have planned for University of Guelph LA alumni. We look forward to seeing you! www.uoguelph.ca/sedrd/fifty-years-la-celebration-fall Karen Landman and Sean Kelly are professors of Landscape Architecture at the School of Environmental Design & Since 1964, the University of Guelph has graduated approximately 1500 landscape architecture students, who make up a large percentage of practicing and academic landscape architects in Canada. Among them are many notables, as nominated by alumni. Since the Guelph program was founded, the school has recognized the importance of outreach, and the Community Outreach Centre Rural Development at the University of Guelph, as well as BLA (89) Alumni. klandman@uoguelph.ca skelly03@uoguelph.ca 1.
