Design Tour

Attendees visited these six incredible sites in 2014.


In the Field Design Tour 2017


Get ready for In the Field Design Tour 2017. This all-day learning field trip concentrates on five successfully executed sites that offer important educational viewpoints in design, engineering, construction and maintenance. All five sites are located on Chicago’s North Shore. The full-day bus tour will stop by each of these unique and incredible sites throughout the day. At each of the five tour stops, designers and guides will be on hand to discuss various features of the site. These sites have been handpicked from dozens of projects. They will provide an injection of inspiration and a new perspective on the design process.

In the Field 2017 was developed by the ILCA Design Committee. It has sold out each time it has been offered. Lunch is included and will be at Elawa Farm.

In the Field offers 5.5 CEs for Landscape Architects.
