Each year the American Society of Landscape Architects has an annual meeting, and this year it was in Chicago. I've gone to three of the last four, and must say that this was one of the most enjoyable weekends. Some of that may be caused by my circumstances surrounding each meeting. (Minneapolis I was still in Grad School and a week from presentations, so my mind wasn't fully there; San Fransisco I had just graduated and had an interview set up that I was to busy freaking out about to enjoy… Continue

If you use SketchUp and AutoCAD in your practice, chances are you have imported one of your AutoCAD files into SketchUp or visa versa. SketchUp was developed by two former AutoDesk employees and it makes sense that these programs are directly compatible.
In fact, they share many congruent elements. Layers in AutoCAD will import directly into SketchUp. If you have a large CAD layer list, as many projects do, and then open the layers menu in SketchUp (windows layers) after import,… Continue

As many Landscape Architects are well aware, the ASLA national meeting is in a few weeks in Chicago. I've gone to four of the last five meetings, and highly recommend attendance to all professionals and students at least once. The networking opportunities are amazing, as you can find yourself sitting at lunch next to your state's ASLA trustee, and sitting in an education session next to the principal at the firm you've always wanted to work at. You can also join one of the national committees,… Continue
