"As you are presenting what appears to be a public space I would add more people: make the space alive. And while I am not a SkethUp artist, it looks flat to me. The structures pop but the landscape is indistinct. That may reflect your design…"
"No, that is not so. There are a number of limiting factors for plants: soils, drainage, exposure, competing species,differences in microclimate, lack of suitable pollinators, lack of suitable seedling conditions, etc., etc., etc."

How r u? I havent log in on this site for a long while til prompted by your message. There were many landscape contractors involved with the huge gardens by the bay's proj. I will try get the list for you asap. You cld reach me at my direct email add; firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you! I'm also very exited about Leipzig. Have you been to Zurich, the Masoala hall (Vogt Landscape architects)? Thats the next place i wanna visit. Or the Eden project in Cornwall...There are so many places to go to...
I am still looking for a project for my thesis. The one i had got cancelled, it was perfect...designing a tropical greenhouse w/ mainly rare plants but also some animals. But it's hard to find another greenhouse project. So maybe it's gonna be something for Humbolt penguins. But you are right, every animal is special and needs something special and it's perfect to have been a zoo keeper before.
Thank you for that information. I already know zoolex, it's pretty good though. But i am still hoping to find a nice book about what is important when you are planning for animals. or an interesting zoo architecture book. I have a brochure from Dr. Salzert and a nice book from August Künzel and some books for zookeepers. but its not the same like looking for example for "small gardens".
Are you also interested in greenhouses? If you ever go to Europe, you should go in may and visit the Royal Greenhouses Laeken in Bruxelles. They are only open 3 weeks a year but they are amazing. I've just been there because of my thesis and was stunned. it's unbelievable beautiful!
i was looking through the forum because i was searching for literature or informations about zoo design, thats how i got to your page and your website. I must say, it really looks like a dreamjob, isn't it?
Have a nice day!
it's been a long while and hey it's great to see you here too. thanks for your monthly web updates which i'm still receiving in my zoo email address. congrats for running your own business and wish i had to guts to do the same. wishing you all the best .
I have an outdoor space connected to the house in souther California that receives sun in the late morning to the late afternoon. I'd like to create shelter by planting a vine on suspended wires forming a pergola over the space which faces…Continue
Hi there, I'm wondering if anyone can offer some resources for how Landscape Architecture might be used to remediate oil sands sites? Everything I've found so far is generally experimental, and given my lack of knowledge, I'm having trouble finding…Continue
I just passed the LARE and since I am a glutton for punishment I was looking at getting the LEED ND+C Certification. However, the GBCI just released their new certification called AP Sites. I am confused as to whether sites is apart of the usgbc or…Continue
