ASLA CO Elevates Axel Bishop to the Council of Fellows
Date Posted: June 23, 2014


Axel Bishop, of Design Concepts, received his nomination, for Leadership/Management, from the Colorado Chapter. A leading advocate promoting sustainable landscapes, stormwater management, and learning landscapes in the West, he helped found the Xeriscape Council. He redesigned and codified regional stormwater and drainage systems as naturalized recreational amenities. And he forged new educational frontiers in landscape design for school districts in multiple states. He possesses a unique ability to align citizens and government entities in support of fundamental changes in land design. Many of his ideas are now common practice across America. He also laid the early groundwork to protect the integrity of the practice of landscape architecture for Colorado’s multi-decade re-licensure efforts. His Bachelor of Parks Administration and Landscape Architecture is from Texas Tech University.
