23rd Annual International  HYBRID Digital Landscape Architecture Conference

will be held at Harvard Graduate School of Design (GSD), Cambridge Massachusetts USA, and simultaneously on-line.


Main Theme and Suggested Topics:  “Hybrid Landscapes”

 We live in an increasingly hybrid world. Hybrid plants; hybrid cars; hybrid teaching and  learning; hybrid workplaces; hybrid landscapes…. What “hybrid vigor” can the hybridization of the analog and the digital offer to landscape architects, urban/environmental designers, and planetary citizens?

Abstracts, posters and panel proposals are encouraged on one or more of these topics:

  1. Post-pandemic hybridization in life, landscapes and practice
  2. Algorithmic design and analysis of landscapes
  3. Mobile devices, Internet-of-Things, and ‘Smart’ systems in the landscape
  4. Data Science and Landscape Information Modelling
  5. Drone/UAV imagery and uses
  6. Digital fabrication in landscape architecture
  7. Visualization and animation of landscapes
  8. Mixed reality (AR / VR) and immersive environments
  9. Geodesign approaches, technologies, and case studies
  10. Digital landscape architectural responses to climate change
  11. Teaching digital landscape architecture
  12. Digital landscape architecture in practice

We invite you to contribute to this conference on all aspects of technologies in landscape architecture. The “Extended Abstract” should have a minimum of 1200 words and maximum of three pages text including key references — additional selected graphics are optional. Abstracts are reviewed for full paper submission and possible presentation at the DLA Conference. Submit the extended abstract as a pdf file online via the web-based submission system at:
