Sir Geoffrey Jellicoe Award

The IFLA Sir Geoffrey Jellicoe Award is the highest honour that IFLA can bestow upon a landscape architect. It recognises one’s unique and lasting impact on the welfare of society and the environment and on the promotion of the profession of landscape architecture. The nominee must be an academic or practitioner whose merit, talent and actions are respected internationally.

Tohoku Reconstruction Project

Following the major 2011 Tohoku disaster in Japan, Dr. Misato Uehara planned a research meeting on March 14-16 2019, to discuss the possibility of a future Landscape Architect CPD programme and 2021 APR programme in Japan. The meeting will be held in Fukushima Prefecture Shinchi Town, a site that once hosted the AAPME Awards.

Professor Uehara expects that the exchange of ideas will lead to a new proposal for CPD. This would promote international education and collaborative research on landscape architects in the Asia Pacific region.
