Awesome article Brent. I think desperation unlocks a lot of peoples potential. When you hear how lots of successful people got started you often hear they started with wild ideas like those in the ny times article. It is definitely a great time for creative young people with nothing to lose.April 12, 2010 at 3:50 pm #170196

We are doing a design competition at this years LaBash in Las Vegas. It will be more like a charette because of the short time frame, but should still be pretty cool.

I’m with Les on this one. It feels like buying a Hybrid to save some emissions. You are paying way more money, consuming even more materials, and getting rid of a perfectly good car.
It does look really cool though.November 13, 2009 at 3:37 am #172348
A super effective and relatively cheap option is to take the local community college plant class. Here in Las Vegas they always have not for credit courses offered throughout the year. You could also contact the local extension service. Their plant guru’s will likely know who to talk to or where to look. Good luck.September 2, 2009 at 9:41 pm #173102
In every Landscape journal i’ve read they use more than their fair share of the words paradigm and milieu.August 31, 2009 at 2:15 am #173120
definitely. I actually hate the word now that I’ve heard it so much and I’m not sure that most people can even design a sense of place. I guess thats getting into another topic altogether.August 30, 2009 at 7:42 pm #173121

Thanks Kieth. The liability issues absolutely make sense. Back when I wrote this thread I was thinking it would be fun to do some product design and possibly some graphic design (non-landscape related). Would you consider these types of moonlighting at odds with the errors and omissions policies at your firm? I can definitely see how these activities could distract from work in some cases though, causing many principals to frown on the practice.August 18, 2009 at 3:34 pm #173257
I think the small firms could benefit from these larger firm mergers. Landscape Architecture lacks adequate global and national awareness. Larger corporate firms have the ability to do higher profile jobs and/ or efective marketing, that would make landscape architecture more of a brand name profession. There is the danger of losing professional integrity when lumped in with all of the other discipline but at this point it may help either way.July 7, 2009 at 5:14 pm #173792
I feel your pain Nick. On more than one occasion I have been scolded for not living up to the REGULATIONS. I think the problem is with the American people. We have let too many activists and politicians decide what is good for us. Granted there should be some protection against people infringing on the rights of others but the nerf world we’ve created is too much.
People need to be left to themselves as long as no one innocent is hurt by it. Then live with the consequences good or bad.
