We’ve tossed that idea around in my office. My concern is that we work with primarily HOA’s. I would be concerned about privacy complaints. Programming a drone to map an entire community would risk photographing private property.January 7, 2019 at 2:22 pm #3556885
Using the historical photo of from Google earth can sometimes help with the tree coverage issue. Look for a photo that was taken in the winter or shortly after construction to fill in the gaps that are not visible on a more recent aerial.May 30, 2014 at 7:14 pm #152642
Google Picasa works well. You can tag, create albums, export, and keyword search. There is also minor photo editing available. However you can’t share your tags with others. Tags are stored on your hard drive.January 6, 2012 at 9:58 pm #159075
Recent architecture grads are 13.9%. I’m sure LA’s are far off that.November 22, 2011 at 2:38 pm #159280October 24, 2011 at 5:41 pm #159688
Kierland Commons and Scottsdale Quarter are both projects in Scottsdale AZ that are both close pedestrian and vehicular interactions.September 7, 2010 at 9:58 pm #167859
I agree with you Trace. It does look like a mess. The write calls it “equally art and nature”, I only see art. . . barely.
I’ve never been a fan of artist’s modifying nature and calling it art. “Over the River” for example. One that I do like however was “The Gates” in Central Park.
The write of the articles says that it is inspired by “swells of waves in midocean” I think it looks very rigid and not fluid like waves. The maintenance looks like it would be a nightmare as well, mowing a steep 15′ embankment.
Personally I think it would look better if it was planted with tall prairie grass that would offer more movement in the breeze and would appear as if the “waves” were in constant motion. Ever look across a grass prairie on a breezy day?October 16, 2009 at 5:01 pm #172655
I love to see this kind of work. It’s the type of thing that makes you stop and think about your everyday surroundings. Park(ing) day is another good example. It makes you become more aware of the world around you.
There is also those groups that do the freeze action in a busy location.September 25, 2009 at 4:14 pm #172872
Has anybody noticed that even the LAM’s don’t use standard paper sizes. It’s a little bit shorter and wider than an 8.5×11.
If your going to go with an off size portfolio I would suggest that you keep it within the 8.5×11 size frame. This will allow for it to be mailed and stored easier than if you were to go with something larger.September 22, 2009 at 5:27 pm #172885
Which was the cause? did the demand for the craftsman go by the wayside or have the manufacturers over simplified materials to where nearly anybody can install them. Faux stone that is pre-cut for cornersfor example. I will say though that it still takes a lot of skill to install these products and have a great natural look.September 3, 2009 at 3:47 pm #173098
I think it’s funny when tv show hosts start throwing around the words “green” and “sustainable”.September 2, 2009 at 2:16 pm #173053
It can be done either way. I think a lot of it will be based on the amount of foot traffic that it will get. usually using a 1/4″ minus granite. It can be done by just rolling/tamping it. Or there are many different types of liquid stabilizers out there. Your granite suppliers usually carry some form of it, or paver suppliers will often stock it as well. Soil-Loc Soil Shield LS is a common one. Basically you put down a layer of granite then spray the stabilizer on it, then another layer of granite and another coat of spray and repeat until you reach your desired thickness. Usually 2-3 layers will suffice for a pathway. Done properly it will last for years even with wet weather.
If you have a LAM laying around flip through it and you will find 3-4 different brands of stabilizer.August 25, 2009 at 9:53 pm #175075
My review location happened to be the same place that I took the test. I don’t know if this is common or not though.
I don’t know how you would review long distance. Your given a copy of your test with comments and there is a proctor in the room as well.August 11, 2009 at 7:17 pm #173373
so is the architect according to Will Alsop.
Good to know that someone with as many years in the field as you have feels the same as I do.August 11, 2009 at 3:22 pm #173430
I actually got my first job off of career builder, not through them matching me up but by me searching out landscape companies.
As for the resume id theft I’ve never thought about that happening until now. I used those job sites just to find a company then I would contact them personally from my personal email or by phone.
