Welcome to the first edition of our monthly IFLA APR Newsletter for 2021!

To start off the new year, both IFLA APR's President, Mr. Takano, and NZILA President Brad Coombs, share some inspiring messages for the year ahead. Moving forward into 2021, resident writer Crystal Cheng discusses the role of urban morphology and how "space is fundamental in any exercise of power".

This month, we sat down with the award-winning firm, AD+RG to discuss some of their most successful projects. Last but not least, IFLA APR is offering opportunities for volunteering and sponsorships! Don't miss out on your chance to learn from the best in the community and reach your target audience!

Happy New Year!

As we enter this New Year, our roles as landscape architects are now more important than ever. To reconfigure the City, Countryside, and Nature, we must consider fundamentally in a nationwide, long-term perspective, to practice profoundly with a bright heart and strong determination in order to take it to the next level.

Not only as a country,
Not only as a profession,
Not only as a generation,
Let's collaborate with friends from countries in the Asia Pacific and around the world to pursue our dreams.

We have the Brains of Scientists.
We have the Eyes of Artists.
We have the Hearts of Poets.
We have the Wisdom of Philosophers.

We are Landscape Architects.

2021 January President of IFLA Asia Pacific Region
