  • That’s magic! And so inspiring, truly. Thank you very much.

  • Thanks Michael. I am preparing for the Chicago trip, and I feel I need some time to articulate what I want to accomplish. I am still an entry level (graduated last year), so it takes sometime to be able to contribute more significant way. I am interested in GIS technologies and how it can help design the sites which has challenging topography and…[Read more]

  • Hi Noriko,

    You are quite a firestarter, just look at this discussion you provoked?

    So I think you are far more capable of much bigger things than just taking notes and pictures in Chicago. What do you dream about? What keeps you up at night? Why did you really become a Landscape Architect? TELL US!

  • Well, thanks to the downturn, I have enough free time to go to Chicago for ASLA Conference. I hope I can meet with you at Alumni Reunion on Friday at 8 PM. Your comments are inspiring.

  • This really is the time to start new things. During past down turns, many new, small firms grew, new ideas explored and new energy was built upon.

Much progress has been…[Read more]

  • I hear you Michael! I thankfully still have a job, but am afraid to think outside the box – since I might lose my job because of it.

  • Hi Noriko,

    Thank you! What a great post. Many people are finding themselves out of work at this time, but I think that this economic downturn is going to foster incredible creativity in those that don’t find themselves gainfully employed by an established firm. The time is NOW to really get out there and think differently about our land and our…[Read more]

  • I graduated in 2008 (last year) am working at EDAW in Seattle. I lost contact with most of my classmates and am wondering how they are doing. I am wondering what I can do to contribute for the community that is suffering gravely due to the poor economy.
