We are pleased to announce that Sasaki principal and landscape architect Michael Grove, ASLA, has been elected to the Board of Directors of the Landscape Architecture Foundation (LAF). Board members serve for a minimum of four years and bring a range of experience and perspectives from landscape architectural practice, academia, industry, real estate development, and the nonprofit sector.
Grove is one of LAF’s 31 board members charged with advancing the relevance and impact of Landscape Architecture globally. Michael’s extensive international experience with regional planning, urban districts, and waterfront projects will help bolster this charge. Michael also serves on the Global Exchange Council of the Urban Land Institute (ULI) and is a juror for the ULI Global Awards for Excellence.
"It is a humbling honor to join the LAF board, and our mission to support the preservation, improvement, and enhancement of the environment. I am especially looking forward to helping increase the profession’s visibility in the global context.”
The LAF board is a diverse group of thought leaders in Landscape Architecture and affiliated design professions. Sasaki has a long history of participation in the organization tracing back to the LAF’s founding in 1966, with previous board members including Stu Dawson, FASLA and Mark Dawson, FASLA. Sasaki is also proud to have many LAF Olmsted Scholar winners working at the firm today.
