The 23rd Annual International Digital Landscape Architecture Conference HYBRID

will be held in-person at Harvard Graduate School of Design (GSD), Cambridge Massachusetts USA
(public health considerations allowing* ) , and simultaneously / asynchronously on-line.

* Note:  While we currently planning for a ‘Hybrid’ event, the future prospects for in-person attendance at DLA2022 are completely uncertain at this point. In June, Harvard University and GSD may have different Pandemic-related guidelines for in-person gatherings than State or US Federal/CDC ones; may limit in-person attendance in various ways, including  requiring Proof-of-Vaccination or recent Negative-Covid Test, mandatory masking, social distancing, and other restrictive policies which may be applied at any time without prior notice, and which are non-negotiable. This web-page will be updated frequently as those conditions change. Any travel or accommodation plans you make to participate in DLA2022  in-person will be entirely at your own risk.

Nonetheless, we look forward to ‘seeing’ you, in-person or on-line !

REGISTRATION will open On-Line in February 2022.


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?

As of Dec. 1, 2021 we are delighted to report that nearly 80 submissions from around the globe have been accepted for double-blind-peer-review, for consideration for publication in JoDLA 7-2022, and possible presentation at DLA2022, on 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

 Abstracts are blind-reviewed for full paper submission by a panel of peer-reviewers. All or some authors of accepted papers will be invited to present at DLA2022 HYBRID, at Harvard, either in-person, remote-live, or by pre-recorded video. Details on presentation options will be announced in Spring 2022.
