The New Landscape Declaration: A Call to Action for the Twenty-First Century (ISBN 9781945572692) is available for $29.95 from online retailers including Powell's, Indie Bound, Barnes & Noble, and Amazon.


In 2016, the Landscape Architecture Foundation honored its 50th anniversary by hosting The New Landscape Declaration: A Summit on Landscape Architecture and the Future. More than 700 landscape architects from around the world gathered in Philadelphia for the event. Well beyond the public conception of the profession as "gardener" or "park designer," these landscape architects discussed their role in addressing weighty issues like climate change, urbanization, management of vital resources, and global inequities. Their ideas were used to craft the New Landscape Declaration, a manifesto for landscape architecture in the 21st century.

Now, LAF and Rare Bird Books have released The New Landscape Declaration: A Call to Action for the Twenty-First Century, a 240-page book that features the 32 "Declarations" written for the summit, along with excerpts from panel discussions and an opening essay by Richard Weller of the University of Pennsylvania School of Design.

The book brings together all of the ideas from the summit, with original essays from James Corner, Gina Ford, Randy Hester, Kate Orff, Mario Schjetnan, Martha Schwartz, Carl Steinitz, Kongjian Yu, and more. It is now available in hardcover and ebook form through online retailers, including Powell's, Indie Bound, Barnes & Noble, and Amazon.

"We are thrilled to launch this historic publication, which should continue to inspire and provoke the landscape architecture discipline for many years to come," said LAF CEO Barbara Deutsch.

In his opening essay, Richard Weller of PennDesign states, "The 32 declarations collected here are good to think with. Each has some wisdom that will help you form your own answers to the challenges the New Landscape Declaration presents."
