About Perspectives

Perspectives is NELDHA's on-line professional publication that presents timely and relevant articles on landscape design, history and preservation, with a special emphasis on New England landscapes.

Perspectives began as a publication of the Student Chapter of the Boston Society of Landscape Architecture at the Radcliffe Seminars in Landscape Design. In the spring 2013, Perspectives debuted as an online publication available to the public. Corresponding with our professional networks, our publication is divided into sections: Design, History and Preservation (PresNet). You will also find sections on Book Reviews and Travel and Opinion.
