    Hello, Funny I also am relocating to PDX in December this 2010 from Norwalk, CT and I am in the trenches networking and looking for a position. The ability to fairly quickly travel from dense Urban to open rugged spaces is great out here. Bits of the high desert I have seen are pleasantly new to me. How to manage water is a unavoidable and…[Read more]

  • Hey all,. I just moved to Portland, from Las Vegas and I am interested in meeting other LA’s in the area. Trying to learn the local culture. 🙂

    Hi Lisa, I studied at UW in the LA program there.

    I think the stonework both in how it was used/located in space and how it was finished stood out to me as being particularly of a PNW style.

    Speaking of iconic Northwest landscape designs, the great Lawrence Halprin died on Sunday, October 25th at the age of 93.

    I see that you’re from New York. It’d be interesting to hear your opinion on what you think defines a PNW design. You mention Haag and Murase but what elements stand out to you? Are there any particular spaces that spoke to you?

  • Hey all,

    I was recently in the Seattle/Bremerton area and notice with some glee, some disdain the recent parks and their design. While I’m thrilled to see more pocket parks and interesting streetscapes in the area, I have to say, the influence of certain PNW designers have positively prevailed. I don’t think these parks were by Murase or Haag,…[Read more]

    I put an album on my folio called “Parks & Restoration . Anderson Property”. This is the project I worked on which integrates restoration and design (part of the paper I mentioned in the last email). A topic which could be argued about. You also might want to go to UW campus and see the Fisheries building and adjacent parking lot and the Shell…[Read more]

    Hi Karen, I wrote a paper on your topic, “The Restoration of a Harvested Thuja plicata/Tsuga heterophylla Forest Ecosystem to Recreate Mature Second Growth with Old-Growth Characteristics and Aesthetic Qualities” I believe you can use native plants in such a way that can achieve a “stunning landscape”. As those who have already stated in this…[Read more]

    Aren’t we a quiet group! Hello all. I am trying to refine my thesis question or topic. It is going to center around what design principles could successfully be used with native plants particular to a specific bioregion (in my case the pacific northwest, zones 3-5) in order to create a landscape of high design. My purpose is to demonstrate to the…[Read more]
