Jones & Jones President, Ilze Jones AIA, FASLA was a member of the American Society of Landscape Architects 2011 Professional Awards jury. Each year, the ASLA Professional Awards honor the best in landscape architecture from around the globe, while the ASLA Student Awards give us a glimpse into the future of the profession.

Jones & Jones founder and Partner Grant Jones was the keynoter for the 2011 conference of the American Society of Landscape Architects, Washington chapter on the topic, Who Are We? Thoughts on Leadership, the Next 150 Years.  “Landscape Architecture” was this country’s invention and it served this land well. Great contributions to our country’s landscape were made by our ranks during critical periods, shaping our unique cities and national and regional parks connected to these cities. Are landscape architects contributing this leadership now? The future holds huge opportunities.
