After practising in a LA office for the last few years i have decided to go back to university to study for a Masters degree. There is a field trip organised to Amsterdam in October but we have other options available to us (a different city etc), financial restrictions mean i am looking around for other options so my question is:
Can any of you advise of a city in North America that would be rich in Landscape Architectural innovation/common practices etc. I know of the obvious ones (New York) and am looking for some options with regards to other cities.
A few years back we had Mayor Wellington Webb, who was a great proponent of landscape architecture and made a great push for a green ring along the Platte. Northside Park, 16th street Mall, and historic Olmstead designs. Plus, it’s home to UCD’s Landscape Architecture department- an excellent resource for visiting students. Nearby is Boudler for a study of walkable Pearl Street, and the foothills of the Rockies, for a study of outstanding State and National Parks. And, unlike some of those larger Cities you mentioned, you can kind of see it all in just a couple days.
