Professor Le Bleu presents at IFLA Conference

Charlene Lebleu, Associate Professor in the Master of Landscape Architecture program, presented a paper and a poster at the International Federation of Landscape Architecture (IFLA) World Congress in Auckland, New Zealand, April 11.  The peer-reviewed paper entitled “Designing Africa in Alabama, USA” describes the historic significance of AfricaTown in Mobile County, AL, an area where the descendants of the last recorded group of captive Africans brought to the United States continue to live and make their home.  The paper highlights studio proposals to commemorate the history in the form of a State Park. The poster, "Plaza Independencia—Plaza Formation & Expression: Montevideo, Uruguay," was co-authored with Marjorie Woodbury, a 2012 graduate of the MLA program. LeBleu and Woodbury traveled to Montevideo, Uruguay in fall 2011 to study urban plazas and continue to collaborate on projects.
