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.
