Well put. I a client who appreciates garden design also knows that Landscape Architects are professionally equipped to do it.
I would think that these northeastern coastal towns in ruin need to put some planning policies in place to to establish whole new zoning standards and master planning to redesign and recreate places in an effort to replace single family homes affected by Hurricane Sandy that were 25 feet from the ocean. We all knew that “one day” a hurricane coul…[Read more]
Refreshing to see an article on reality. Will we change the culture?
Probably the most ambitious at least since the last ‘global’ landscape project….How come most of us never got the RFP for this one? (wink)………no seriously, it would really help my bottom line.
I think two states, (one I know being Florida) recently have come dangerously close to deregualting landscape architecture due to the downturn. I’m sure many individuals have put the licensing process on hold as well as memberships. ASLA has reported a 20% loss in membership since 2008.

Yeah. Once somebody gets a reply for a resume sent out since 2008, or has more than one project a month on the boards at the most, let us now. After that, maybe we’ll know their might be an uptick,,,
Now, more than ever, employers would like a person with proficeint AutoCAD, SketchUp, etc., superior plant material knowledge, field supervision, and (10 years experience in mind), with a 0-3 years salary request, usually out of school. This is what these postings mean. No such individual exists. Most of the time, when the work thins, you are…[Read more]
True. Some “general public” type people have mentioned this project to me. I guess that means it has at least broken through as a landscape architectural project. I guess that helps…or does it?

If you have the means to purchase Land F/X, the plant list – symbol relationship and quanity will never be a problem again…HUGE timesaver, thus more efficiency. Its brilliant.

I remember, at least where I studied, a “buzz” and an inherent knowledge about how much work was really out there for us, especially closer to each class’ graduation. However, this was back in the 90’s and even though there certainly was a recession there in the early part for Planners, PEs and LAs, but nothing that would compare of the downturn…[Read more]

Sorry about the politics now I cant help it…
What do firms look for? WORK. For, if the firm has no work, then you have no work. They will push and pull employees to accomodate how much they have. If you are productive and they have enough work, you stay. If not, you go. Everything else is semantics and BS, despite what is taught and what you have heard.
These are the facts boys and girl…[Read more]

Right on, Craig…even though most or all of us in ACE industry are indeed sucking wind, the infrastructure is falling apart, as noted by the Reinvestment and Recovery Act, which had little effect in 2008-09. The only real substantial work right now for AEC is in public utility improvement or maintence. How do LAs fit in? Everywhere (the old s…[Read more]
