Landscape architecture, architecture, and planning should act as a whole entity striving to practice for a single common goal: healing the environment. This environment is not just the quintessential “nature” depicted by extravagantly pastoral scenes in a country meadow or the dense forest full of wild, native vegetation, but it's our cultural, social, political and economic web of inter-relationships. Think of an environment focused on what should be the building blocks of our ecology: the landscape. That's what I strive for.

Is it time for Landscape Architects to step into the spotlight?

Throughout history—with the exception of the great Olmsted, of course—it seems that landscape architects seldom find their way into the design spotlight. Lurking in the shadows of a project's sources, the portion of folks…
