The Necessity of Advocacy: Amplifying the Intersection of Landscape Architecture and the Policies That Support the Profession

Democracy operates on engagement and relationships. To elevate the profile of landscape architecture, the public outreach of the profession’s government affairs must move beyond the virtue based rationalization and create arguments that resonate and connect. Without effective involvement, landscape architects risk substantial economic costs and lessen the overall impact of our…See More

Jonathon;

I read your essay on ADAPTIVE DESIGN...and I have to disagree with what you said....that "we will all be haunted for many years to come, due to the results of the recent Presidential Election".  Jon, we've been living in a "Socialist" Gov't for the past 8 yrs...I personally saw zero hope and change as those were the worst 8 yrs. of my very long LA career.  Trump is our ONLY hope. IMO, Hillary would have been like the Captain of the TITANIC.  I just feel that way too many University LA professors are brain washing their LA students into believing if they don't get seriously involved in sustainable/green energy projects....they won't be contributing to our Society or World.  Those Professors are living in a "bubble". If you can make a good living continuing on your current career path...Great, but, I think you are an exception to the rule. Best Regards, Bob.
