Landscape architects are professionally concerned with the design, management, preservation, and use of the land. The curriculum in Landscape Architecture provides a foundation in all of these areas with particular emphasis on design, along with the cultural and technical subjects that support it. Coursework includes study of the elements and principles of art, design and planning processes, graph

ic communication, plants and planting design, construction methods and environmental history. Instruction fosters the development of creative and problem-solving abilities, communication skills, technical knowledge, environmental awareness and professional attitudes. In most courses, students develop design proposals or technical solutions for actual sites with instruction, guidance, and critiques from faculty members. In the final year of study, students may choose to emphasize urban or regional landscape issues.

Tall buildings and small paper houses are surrounded by a forest made with bamboo skewers and construction paper. Several elements are floating from string hanging from the ceiling: an airplane, a floating casino, and a dinosaur. Gondolas hang from string tied to bamboo poles through the trees.

Congratulations to Jiyoon Kim! Jiyoon is recognized with a Dangermond Research Fellowship!
My career objective is to design and build an environment that can both benefit nature and humans in harmony. Designing and building green spaces that people can enjoy and provide habitat for species will increase biodiversity which will benefit people back. My other career goal is to design a space that can benefit as many people as possible instead of fewer yet elaborate designs that benefit fewer selected people. I would like to create practical designs that might look simple or common but if that simplicity can lead to that design or infrastructure being replicated to benefit more people, that is the kind of design I want to create.

Congratulations to Sage Magee! Sage is recognized with a Dangermond Research Fellowship!
Sage is a class of '24 MLA student who seeks to use the skills of landscape architecture to introduce sustainable, ethical, aesthetically beautiful public spaces such as parks, playgrounds, and communal residential greenspace. The principle of Universal Design, that people of all abilities and ages deserve the same access to natural spaces guides her thinking and planning in her projects.

Congratulations to Savannah Baca! Savannah is recognized with Dangermond Research Fellowship!
I aspire to work as a landscape architect for LA county where I can help design green spaces to restore the ecology of the landscape and preserve the culture of the community. I want to help make the county more inclusive by building parks in areas that lack these open vegetated spaces. I would like to also work in habitat restoration of our water ways and wetlands in Southern California.

Congratulations to Izabella Uribe! Izabella is recognized the Grisol Lupita Ramirez Memorial Scholarship!
I developed an interest in landscape design and architecture at an early age after being exposed to the field at an early age. In my senior year of high school, at the age of sixteen, I began designing my own projects after years of shadowing my mother. During college applications, I knew landscape architecture was the right field for me. A career objective of mine is to make people fall in love with landscapes as much as I do. I want people to feel immersed in the spaces they enter, feeling small in a landscaped space, loving, and having access to a space they can enjoy.

Congratulations to Alexandra Corona! Alexandra is recognized with a Lifescapes International Scholarship!
Landscape architecture incorporates elements from every aspect of life that I am passionate about; people, art, and the Earth. I want to focus on creating a space that will bring communities together, bring artful and sustainable parks and open spaces to every community rich or poor, preserve cultural landscape heritage, and sustain all forms of life on Earth. The goal is to make these places in ways that help improve the environment and promote the health of people over time.

Congratulations to Sahar Fazelvalipour! Sahar is recognized with the EDAW Scholarship in honr of Francis Dean!
This is Sahar Fazelvalipour, a master's student in Cal Poly Pomona with five years of work experience and a student engineer in Caltrans, Division of Design- Landscape Architecture.  I am persistent in learning more and more about green architecture, sustainable design and plants, and ecology to become familiar with new information and methods that can be effective in our designs that will help myself and the industry I am working to grow. I am looking to do something that can help me get more assertive in my research area and get one step closer to my passion by focusing more on my school to improve my skills and get closer to my goal, which is to continue my major and get my Ph.D. and be a professional in this field that can help the community and myself have a better life quality.

Congratulations to Francisco Salas-Tamayo! Francisco is recognized with the ONA Scholarship!
I am a first year MLA grad student. I was born and raised in the Bay Area and attended UC Davis where I graduated with a degree in Chicano Studies with an emphasis in Social Policy. I chose to pursue a masters degree in landscape architecture because of my interest in improving human and environmental health in low-income communities.

Congratulations to Darius Kennedy! Darius is recognized with the Bravely Leading and Advancing Curiosity and Knowledge in Landscape Architecture (B.L.A.C.K. in L.A.) Scholarship!
My main goal in landscape architecture is to address the issues that are found in public spaces for people that look like me. I want to provide spaces that will make everyone feel included and free to express themselves. Working with local organizations in school has shown me problems on the microscale the problems that different minority groups across the social spectrum are facing whether that be environmental, food, transportation, visibility, safety, etc. Most of these problems take place because of the arrangement of our built environment, meaning that landscape architects can and should solve these problems, which I intend to do with the skills I have learned at Cal Poly.

Congratulations to Daniel Nonaka! Daniel is recognized with the Howard O. Boltz Memorial Scholarship!
I chose Landscape Architecture as a profession because of the significant impact it has on society now and for future generations. The profession is far more than just designing “art” within the landscape, its deals with complex issues of social, economic, and environmental factors to achieve sustainable outcomes. It’s an evaluation and appreciation of the spaces we occupy both the natural and built environments. As a landscape architect I hope to design spaces that addresses these issues to help create meaningful and impactful relationships with the landscape.

I am a first year MLA student at CPP. I graduated with a degree in Sustainability from SDSU in 2018 and have worked as a self-taught graphic designer, illustrator, and artist for the past 3 years. This new journey into landscape architecture allows me to combine my passion for design with my drive to make a foundational impact on the way we view and interact with the natural world. My hope is to build gardens that facilitate magical and memorable experiences and remove us from our everyday lives just long enough to see what's truly possible.

Congratulations to Jocelyn Aquino! Jocelyn is recognized with the Ruth Shellhorn Memorial Scholarship funded by ! aa   While in school, Landscape Architecture had led me to witness many different things. My goal is to reach my full potential during my stay at Cal Poly Pomona. Reaching this goal will lead me to be prepared before going out into the real world. Landscape architecture combines art and science and it’s the profession that designs, plans and manages our land. I want to  work with others and change our environment into a more sustainable and greener place for the community.  Pursuing this career has led me to be more determined about it. Losing my mom a couple months ago led me to be more focused into reaching my goals for her and for myself. Seeing her passion towards her plants and seeing her smile has led me to pursue this career because I want others to feel the same way towards their plants. I believe green spaces throughout the community will enlighten everyone in that neighborhood. I see myself helping others in the next 10 years. Willing to do that for the rest of my life. Bring joy and a better future for everyone.

Congratulations to Hayley Stansell! Hayley is recognized with 1st-year MLA Prospect Award! nature My work is motivated by two major concepts. One is that human health and the health of the environment are symbiotic - when one is supported, so is the other. Another is that the benefits of exposure to nature, as well as the benefits of ecosystem services, can be cultivated in small spaces, spaces close to us, spaces we can access in our daily lives. Together, these concepts frame the potential I hope to realize through my career, working to create systems of landscapes which support wellbeing, biodiversity, and sustainability.

Congratulations to Graham Feltham! Graham is recognized with a 2022 Collaborative for Healthy and Inclusive Learning Environments (CHILE) Studio Award!
I am training as a landscape architect to make the change I wanted to see growing up in the rust belt of upstate New York.  I believe that landscape architects are uniquely positioned to affect positive change in our interactions with the land upon which our cities are built, as well as facilitate equity of access for the historically disadvantaged.  With the specters of climate change, drought, park poverty, and rising heat island effect at the forefront of my mind, training as a landscape architect is the most immediate way for me to work to heal the symbiotic relationship between humanity and the natural world. I plan on using the expertise gained from this masters program to work towards equity of access to green space, more resilient cities, and ecologically responsible solutions to the plethora of social, environmental, and economic problems we face as humans in the beginning of the 21st century.
