Department of Landscape Architecture WreckShop 2019 draws pros to campus

Save the date to attend WreckShop, the Student American Society of Landscape Architects TTU chapter organized event. We invite professionals and alumni to learn, network, and collaborate with our students and faculty. WreckShop will feature an expo for firms to share their work, a collaborative professional-student design charrette, portfolio review session to observe and interact with students, as well as social events and networking opportunities. The theme for WreckShop this year is "Keepin' it Local" focusing on how landscape architects can create a sense of community and well-being within our local areas. The event coordinators will incorporate speakers and vendors in this great opportunity and encourage you to tell your local story through lectures, conversation, and charrette opportunities. WreckShop Fall 2018 kicks off with lectures and a reception on Thursday, November 1, and concludes on Saturday November 3, with a celebratory Red Raider Football tailgate.
