Free

Lecture by Brian Davis, ASLA

NC State Department of Landscape Architecture Alumni Lecture featuring Brian Davis, ASLA
Assistant Professor, Cornell University, Ithaca, NY

Honorary membership is among the highest honors ASLA can bestow upon non-landscape architects in recognition of notable service to the profession. Since its inception in 1899, ASLA has inducted only 207 honorary members. On April 5th NCASLA will recognize Mr. Poole prior to the J. Gregory Poole Jr., Dix Visionaries.
J. Gregory Poole Jr. is a focused corporate executive and more recently an urban design and conservation-sensitive advocate. As chair of the Dix Visionaries, Poole led the fight to secure a 306-acre parcel of land overlooking the city of Raleigh, North Carolina, for future generations as a public space and destination park. His perseverance, energy, and deep commitment to his community galvanized the public on a grassroots level, engaged business and community leaders, and ultimately helped convince state lawmakers to release this land from state control and allow it to become Raleigh’s and North Carolina’s Central Park.
