7th European Biennial of Landscape - Sept 27-29 2012 / Barcelona, Spain

Dear colleagues,

Does anyone have any suggestions on innovative ways of promoting the projects you're working on?
Apart from media and personal websites is there for example other sites which allow to reach wider audience?

Thank you.

Thanks Brandon, long time no see.  Here in China, I am the Senior Landscape Design Manager at the Venetian in Macau, China.  Our resort has 4-30 story hotel towers, 8 pool decks, 3 large interior gardens to rival Vegas and the forecourt or arrival zone will be heavily planted in 4 distinct tropical themes.


My work is ending soon and will be assuming the role as Design Director of a design firm in Shenzhen, China, across the border from Macau and Hong Kong.

I am big into spaces for children. I have worked with children for many years and love to find ways to help them explore, develop, and get a little closer to nature. They are our natural scientists. However, I am also studying storm water mitigation and its connections to green streets. Am working to find ways to combine the two interests.

Steps to realization: Designs for clients always include considerations of the watershed, and if there are children-their needs. I read EPA documents and guidelines, treatises, and landscape architecture books and journals. Of course field trips to exemplar sites, interactions with city officials... I find it all engaging study.

I am a design company that builds. I am extremely passionate about what I do.
My design style is definately contemporary, but will design more natural projects if required. We lean toward the more high end projects that require pool, structures and landscaping. Look forward to networking and learning more.

My favorite projects are residential, with bigger budget. Contemporary style in the design and including the design of the pool and light.

Great idea for a group! I'm not in much of a position to offer advice but am eager to hear a discussion of this. I can say that since I'm also a planner in addition to an la (and have several times been the only planner on the office design team), I've always made a point to check my planning resources (web and old fashioned networking) for RFPs related to streetscapes and other public realm work that ties in with planning (and that I'm most interested in working on).

Added bonus - even if you don't win the job, discovering viable RFPs that the boss/marketing people missed is a great way to add value to your firm and keep an eye on the professional trends in your area.
