Favorite Designers
Thomas Jefferson, "Jefferson mastered architecture through self-study, using various books and classical architectural designs of the day." Robert Manning, "Manning did not receive any education or formal training in fluid mechanics or engineering." Leonardo Da Vinci, "A polymath, born out of wedlock to a peasant woman, Leonardo is widely considered one of the most diversely talented individuals ever to have lived." Frederick Law Olmsted, "Olmsted and Vaux entered the Central Park design competition together, against Egbert Ludovicus Viele among others. Prior to this, in contrast with the more experienced Vaux, Olmsted had never actually designed and executed a landscape design."
