David Gamble will be speaking at the Boston Society of Landscape Architects Conference on March 26, 2018. The presentation discusses the rapidly evolving trends with landscape design practice. Challenges to the traditional design firm are coming from many directions. On the one hand, consolidation continues to take place with large corporate conglomerates actively seeking to acquire small and mid-size firms that specialize. At the same time, an entrepreneurial ethic has cultivated niche firms and virtual practices that can compete, in teams, on the global stage. Additional speakers include Christine Dunn (Sasaki Associates) and Cheri Ruane (Weston & Sampson).
Brian Gregory of Gamble Associates and Josh Fiala of MAPC have initiated a new committee within the Boston Society of Architects, the INFRA\TECTURE Committee, focusing on the intersection of design, transportation and infrastructure. The inaugural session, hosted in April, explored the implications of the Boston Harbor Barrier as a regional-scale solution to the threat of rising sea levels. The May session, which included former Massachusetts Governor Michael Dukakis, focused on the North-South Rail Link, which seeks to connect Boston’s North and South Stations and create a regional rail network.
