The next couple months are going to be a monumental part of my launch as an aspiring landscape architect. The first three years of my education at Iowa State have taught me a great amount in regards to space and place but I have no doubt that I still have much to learn. Landscape design as I see it is all about the experience of a specific place, and how it relates to its immediate and distant surroundings, and this is important in every place that we visit day in and day out.
I am going to be going on a journey across the United States with a bunch of men from my fraternity of Pi Kappa Phi. The purpose of our trip is to raise awareness of people with disabilities as well as raise funding for them (for more information visit my profile at axel). Along the way I plan to document the landscapes that my team and I encounter. I’ll be sketching, photographing, and designing parkways, national parks, playgrounds, and everyday landscapes.
I could not be more excited about kicking off this summer. The trip begins May 30th in Seattle, Washington feel free to follow along and ask questions!
No house should ever be on a hill or on anything. It should be of the hill. Belonging to it. Hill and house should live together each the happier for the other. — Frank Lloyd WrightPublished in
