From transportation planning to water and stormwater management to park design and preservation, the sheer breadth of types of landscape architecture practices supports the notion that the…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.
