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.


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, by submitting an “Extended Abstract” with a minimum of 1200 words and maximum of 2000 words including key references; additional selected graphics are optional. 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.

Submit the extended abstract as a pdf file online via the web-based submission system at:
