ASLA conference 2022: Lands Design is presenting new innovations

The annual conference of the American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA) is held in San Francisco this year. This conference is the biggest annual conference in the field of landscape architecture in the world. It attracts more than 6,000 attendees a year. We will be present there with a new presentation:

Assessment of Environmental Aspects of Landscape Projects Using Parametric Design

In this presentation, we’ll show how the smart objects of Lands Design can be used to calculate different environmental factors through Grasshopper, the parametric design powerful tool integrated in Rhino.

For example, now we can calculate “how much CO2 gets sequestrated by your landscape project”; or “how you compute plant shading in a 3D model”. Yes! Getting such analysis now is possible by using the program. We address a series of computational methods for efficiently analyzing a landscape model. Our workflow will help designers gain detailed knowledge of how to calculate the environmental impact of a landscape project.

Lands Design is present at ASLA Conference on Landscape Architecture, 2022

Our presentation includes 1.25 PDH, LA CES/HSW, AICP, FL, NY/HSW.  Here are more details:

Date & Location:

Saturday, November 12, 2022, 3:45pm – 5:00pm PT, Location: Moscone Center, Room 203-204


  • Elham Ghabouli, Landscape Architect, PhD in Urban and Architectural Management
  • Francesc Salla, Architect and Product Manager, ASUNI SOFT
  • Verena Vogler, Head of R&D McNeel Europe, researcher at Bauhaus University Weimar

Learning Outcomes:

  • Learn about the possibilities of parametric BIM models in Landscape Architecture (LIM) using a new workflow.
  • Learn how to integrate open and export datasets in your landscape model (e.g. topography, global distribution of heat islands)
  • Learn about different analysis approaches for your landscape model (e.g. CO2 sequestration, shading and cooling effect) How parametric design can contribute to analyzing different design possibilities and making design decisions.
  • Learn about generative design and optimization strategies based on environmental analysis results in your landscape 3D model to make design decisions based on quantitative knowledge.
