I am in Dubai and seeking a landscape related job.
I've been here just over two years; and from all I have seen and heard these last 5 weeks, I think the real estate storm is about to crash on Dubai, big time.
So maybe, I should write, seeking a landscape related job anywhere!
Any offer considered.

My favorite projects connect with people and provide some sort of interaction or revelation. I especially love projects that play with varying ways of producing sound that bring people of all ages together and connect them with the space and their surroundings.
One of my favorite newer projects that displays a great example of such a design is the Sea Organ in Zadar, Croatia. This fantastic design uses the sea to create pipe organ-style music, depending on the volume and speed of the… Continue

I have been working with a lot of bloggers lately to help them add plant information or local design information to their blog. I think we have it worked out so that we can push out information on any blog or website that will accept the iFrame html element.
A lot of bloggers just hotlink from Landscapedia to a picture with the html IMG tag to show readers what they are talking about. I've been thinking that there has to be a way to get more information than just an image. So I put… Continue

has created a system that is not only easy but practically contagious in the fun it brings to children in Africa. This concept is catching on and… Continue

Venice, due to being surrounded by sea water, left it's residents to look towards the sky for fresh water. The Piazza San Marco and the cities various campos, have systems designed to capture rain water for use. In the center of the square a well provided access to an underground cistern that was supplied with water from the four drains that surrounded it. The well provided water to the residents who would drop buckets down to collect it. These can still be seen today.…

It's been so busy lately between various deadlines and vacations (ah, I love Europe's vacation allowances!) and now that I'm back in the office it's time to step away from the computer a little bit and help with the massive model. One of the greatest things about Atelier Dreiseitl is our fabulous workshop. We have the ability to make large models and even do water testing, up to 1:1. While I think of myself as being pretty good in spatial visualization when dealing with a project that has 30… Continue
