The American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA) is the national professional association representing landscape architects, with more than 15,000 members in 49 chapters, representing all 50 states, U.S. territories, and 42 countries around the world, plus 72 student chapters.
The group was founded on January 4, 1899, to "establish landscape architecture as a recognized profession in North America", "develop educational studies in landscape architecture", and "provide a voice of authority in the 'New Profession'".
A green roof, which covers 3,000 square feet (280 m2) on the top of the ASLA headquarters, is to be[when?] honoured by Green Roofs for Healthy Cities (GRHC) in the 'Institutional Intensive' category, which honours innovative green roof design in North America, including the countries of the United States, Canada, and Mexico.[clarification needed]
