As the only ongoing architecture and landscape architecture lecture series in Vancouver, the SALA Lecture Series makes an important contribution to the intellectual life of the city. The lectures allow for multiple perspectives on a range of issues, including design, technology, sustainability and professional leadership, and encourage a cross-fertilization of ideas and visions for the future. Your support helps us continue the conversation around the creation of built environments that support civil and sustainable living.
