Hey Ryan!

Would it be possible to get some photos from the summer watercolors studio? My camera broke during the trip so I'm missing a lot.

Hey Ryan, I don't check this too often so I would have gotten back to you sooner. How goes the job hunt?

No, I haven't even checked back. Are they on the website?

Thanks Ryan. Yeah, those graphics were for the Garden Festival competition last Fall ['08]. It was part of our construction implementation studio. It was a really fun project. Didi you participate in the competition?

hey Ryan... thanks for the comment on my thesis project and sorry it's taken me so long to get back to you. A main recurring question I had over the course of the year was how important is it for us as LAs to show people processes in the landscape? I had trouble making the spaces that dealt with remediation (water or soil) really speak to the process of cleansing. Phytoremediation is invisible... so can we make that process visible?

that's great you'll be using phytoremediation in your project... any idea where or what type of brownfield your site is going to be?
