Alumni Paul Comstock recognized as a 2013 ASLA Fellow

Class of ’89 Alumni Paul Comstock will be recognized as a 2013 ASLA Fellow at the 2013 ASLA Annual Meeting & Expo, November 15-18 in Boston. He is the second UCLA Extension Landscape Architecture Program Alumni to become a FASLA.

From ASLA 2013 Fellow Profiles:

Paul K. Comstock received his nomination, for Knowledge, from the Southern California Chapter. Over three decades he has practiced with an emphasis on themed environments and residences, including a stint as a Disney Imagineer. His research and collaborative spirit have influenced nurseries and growers around the world to expand their plant palettes, giving landscape architects the opportunity to incorporate forgotten or overlooked materials into their designs. His work balances independent research, sharing information with peers, and mentoring landscape architecture graduates. His seed exchange efforts and research on local practices have taken him to 80 countries—research that allows him to create a global range of environments and has propagated millions of plants for use throughout the U.S. He received his Landscape Architecture certificate from UCLA.

Please join us in recognizing this amazing Alumni for all his accomplishments!

July 12-14  National ASLA (American Society of Landscape Architecture) convened several national summits on important national issues affecting the profession of Landscape Architecture.  In their first Diversity Summit to discuss the obstacles to specifically Latino and African American’s in landscape architecture,12 emerging professionals from across the nation were chosen to attend.  From Southern California were two of UCLA Extension’s alumni, Tammy Martin and Jessica Centeno, (2012). A white paper and a strategic action plan will be developed to address increasing the awareness and the number of Latinos and African Americans in our profession.

ASLA also convened a Communication Summit where alumni  Martin Schwanauer ’07, was sent by the Southern California Chapter of ASLA to represent the Chapter. At the Communication Summit, ways to increase membership, diversity and awareness of the Landscape Architecture profession are shared and taught to representatives from all 54 chapter representatives.

And at the concurrent Advocacy Summit, Program Director Stephanie Landregan, an alumni  (’93) of the UCLA Extension Landscape Architecture Program , was the representative for the Council of Landscape Architectural Registration Boards (CLARB), where she is the President-Elect. The Advocacy Summit discusses current national, regional and local legislative threats and issues and provides information and strategic tactics to chapters for use in their Government Affairs efforts.
