Roland:

This is landplanner. Are you aware of this firm in China. They are the far leading edge (as in no other firm is doing anything even close to their achievements) in ecological/sustainable/regenerative landscape architecture.

I'm pretty sure your aware of them, but if your not here is their website.

Look at their project accomplishments. They are truely remarkable and have garnered ASLA awards.

If you could land a position with them, you would be right where you want to be, with the exception of severe culture shock (it takes time to overcome that in China) and exceptionally rancid air quality (it is Beijing after all)

Anyway ....check it out.

Hey Roland! How's L.A. doing in Boise? My mom got her PHD at U of I, so its a place that very dear to all of us. Greeting from Dubai!

Hey Roland
I saw you posted on a discussion that you suggested to read The Permaculture Design Manual by Bill Mollison. My brother is really big into permaculture, so I am starting to learn more about it. To you have any other resources you would suggest looking into? Thanks

I'm going to be visiting in Moscow in April. I don't know if you knew that I got my BLA there. I will be dropping in on them. I keep contact with Toru Otawa. I was closer to him and Jim Kuska (retired) than to Steve Drown or Gary Austin. Maybe I'll see you there, too. We'll be trying to cram in a lot in one week.
Good luck with school and say hello to the faculty for me.

Good Luck with the planning. I here they are worse of than LAs. But who knows. I do think that the Environmental areas of planning and LA has promise especially with this administration.

Roland,
Yes it is me, your LARE study group. I passed the test and am now RLA in UT and ID.
Hope to find a place to use them so I don't have to leave Boise.

Hey Roland,
Would you mind passing along the article about the UPenn sustainable design center? I didn't notice anything about it on their website and I'd love to learn more about the program. Also, do you have any recommendations about how to design, layout, or build my portfolio? Its something I'm still haven't quite figured out (i.e. I really have no idea what to do).
Thanks a bunch!
Cheers.

Also, have you had a chance to read the last post in the community development and landscape architecture thread?
