The future of LA in Singapore
A feature on LA Future and Accredited Landscape Architect Anna Yap
"To groom the future of the profession early on, the Singapore Institute of Landscape Architects (SILA) kickstarted the LA Future initiative. Officially launched by the National Trades Union Congress (NTUC) Secretary-General, Mr. Chan Chun Sing, at the 6th SILA Student Design Awards in 2016, LA Future is a ground-up community comprising mostly of SILA graduate and student members....
...LA Future is pioneered by Ms. Anna Yap who has been serving as a Council Member of SILA (Singapore Institute of Landscape Architects) since 2017. Her vision is for LA Future to serve as a catalyst between students and working professionals, bridging the gap between them while establishing an active landscape architecture community. As such, activities such as quarterly sharing and networking sessions, the annual SILA Student Design Awards and the variety of technical tours, are amongst programs that have been organized thus far. Through this, she hopes to make SILA more relevant to a wider community."
