What people say about con'text

“I always look forward to reading con’text magazine not only to keep abreast of new happenings at the School, but also to learn about how various planning techniques are continually being applied in creative and interesting ways. I look at the magazine as providing a very agreeable form of continuing education.” – Randall Arendt, Planner, Author of Envisioning Better Communities

“If you could create a magazine that was a combination of a landscape version of Fine Homebuilding, the New Yorker with dirt under its fingernails and a kind of Facebook college magazine you would end up with con’text.  The magazine is a rich compost of practical knowledge, decent roll your sleeves up philosophy, with old and new minds working together.” – Andrew Coates, Principal, Cresolus, SA: Africa + Americas  

“I find Conway’s mission and projects so inspiring. In these times when whole system approaches are critical, here [in con’text] are stories that blend realism with bold vision, attention to local detail with landscape scale, and beauty with practicality.  Out of this living laboratory in the New England woods, come models to guide us into an uplifted future.  Our hearts, hands and heads will thank Conway for inviting us along on the journey. ” – Gailmarie Kimmel, Co-Director, Be Local Northern Colorado

Con’text is a great read, full of interesting and intriguing information, and a testimony to the quality of your students.” – Edwina von Gal, Landscape Designer, Co-founder and President, Azuero Earth Project Panama
