Hello Andrew;

Read your last comment carefully....you made some VERY good points!  Sorry, I got so defensive about some of your other comments.

I actually DO believe there are a variety of ways (methods) to get great "creative results"....even if an LA isn't really strong with "hand graphics".  I guess my beef is that so many LAs have pulled away from hand drawing and rely way to heavily on "computer software"...and have for many yrs. now.  LA University Professors haven't been pushing "hand drawing" skills...but, I recently learned from another one of my LAND8 friends who can draw circles around me (who has even published a book with incredible sketches & drawings)....that University professors are beginning to teach hand sketching and graphics again in their LA programs.

I realize it's really NOT the "method" you use to get great design results......it's just seems strange to me that just about all the LA's here on LAND8 seem to talk about is all the issues, problems, and all of the gazillion types of "computer software" programs you can use.  It just seems like over-kill.  Several yrs. ago, a Civil Engineer friend of mine told me that he believed Landscape Architects NEVER should have gone to autoCAD...he said, you guys design loose, more freely...Engineering & Architecture is tight, more precise.  I tend to believe that the companies who develop autoCAD & other drawing computer software saw Landscape Architecture (and Interior Design) as just a way to expand their profits.

Well....I've pretty much been out of the loop the last several years....outside looking in.  I'm just interested.....observing what's going on with our profession.  I apologize to you, Andrew....yeah, I think we're more alike than we both think! *smile*

Best Regards,

Bob

Andrew........as you can see below, I have apologized to you in the past.

I don't appreciate the recent "attacks & disrespect" you have shown towards me in the FORUM.  You can believe what you like about "hand drawing skills vs. autoCAD".....but, go ahead and compare your FOLIO samples with mine.  There is no comparison!!! 85% of the projects I have designed have been multi-million dollar developments...in 17 different states.  I personally "hand drew" every sketch, prelim. drawing, color rendering, final contract documents, job site visits for the more than 600 projects I've designed.  Only about 15% of the projects I have designed were "residential".  Because I have outstanding "hand drawing" skills...and began my LA career in 1977...I have not seen a need for autoCAD. 

And I graduated 20 yrs. with my LA degree 20 yrs. before you did...so, I don't see WHY you feel like you have all the answers...you don't.  NOW.......you owe ME an apology for your "smart remarks" towards me....I don't appreciate your attitude!

 

At 12:10am on June 19, 2013, J. Robert Wainner said…

Dear Andrew;

Listen, I wish to sincerely apologize to you....for you and I getting  "sideways" in the LAND8 discussion about autoCAD and drawing skills.    I didn't intend to offend you....but, I realize that I did. I hope you will forgive my be so insensitive towards you.  I do fully realize that there really are different "methods" of creating & presenting LA designs to clients. I guess I've just sort of "overdosed" on "sketching & hand drafting".  Hey, I have no clue how to do ANY computer software programs. I've been lucky no client has asked me to produce Contract Documents on autoCAD. As it is...if I get a major design project in the future, I will find myself in a position where I will have to hire a young LA (who has autoCAD skills) to do the production drawings for me. I also can not do perspective drawings or birdseye view sketches...only "Plan Graphics & Elevations"...so, I definitely have lack some skills that I wish I had.

Take care up there......I hope business is very good for you throughout the Summer months!

Very Respectfully Yours,

Bob

Andrew, did you see the bio about Ed last week. I tuned in but it wasn't on.

Andrew, thanks for the heads up, I will definitely watch it. That will be more then likely be my last sports related program to watch. After the Phills going out in the first round and the Eagles having a miserable season, I'm tires of having my heart ripped out and stomped upon.

My new sports to follow are curling and indoor Canadian quoits.

Hey Andrew!

I'm Sam, and I am currently a summer student enrolled in a Landscape Architecture class at the University of Maryland. I am very interested in the profession. 

For a class project, I am using Land8Lounge as a place to ask landscape architects from around the world a few questions about their field. I came across a few of your posts in the forum, and browsed through some of your work as well. You seem very passionate about your work; I love it!

So if you are at all interested in participating, then feel free to write me back. 

Thanks!!

Best,

Sam

A real strange vibe.

Thanks for the invitation Andrew.

I recall the names and remember them somewhat. As i recall my social circle did not interface with theirs all that frequently. Are they practicing LA's...Remember Kate? She ended up being a professor there at Idaho

Been married for 17 years, two daughters (who do not want to be landscape architects). I had my own business for 7 years but know i work for the city of los angeles department of rec and parks. I work in the advance planning section of the planning department. You ask what 'Advance planning' is and its basically me sitting around thinking up cool types spaces and then doing it. I was lucky with the skate stuff as I am real good friends with Rob Dyrdek and Steve Berra and I got us to do some public private partnerships with us along with NIKE......I am pretty fourtunate in that i feaking love what i do!!

 

I know how it is working with civil eng as i work way back then for the county of los angeles department of public works and it blew big time as the civils and i never really saw eye to eye on anything.
