lukad replied to the topic When did you determine that the profession is not respected? in the forum GENERAL DISCUSSION 12 years ago
I believe it’s the general lack of Landscape Starchitects and the general offense to the classic “design my backyard” remark for many. Otherwise, this field is actually becoming much more respected. See: http://archrecord.construction.com/news/daily/archives/090806landscapearc-1.asp

lukad replied to the topic What are the most commonly used computer programs used by Landscape Architects in order of most to least? in the forum GENERAL DISCUSSION 12 years ago

I haven’t done any update to my folio, but I’m currently working full time at a firm (the one I interned at) made up of registered planners and architects, and 1 or 2 unregistered LA’s. I was hoping grad school would act as a means to not only go beyond what I learned in my BSLA, but also act as a means to reinsert myself into the field when…[Read more]
