Well, thanks to the downturn, I have enough free time to go to Chicago for ASLA Conference. I hope I can meet with you at Alumni Reunion on Friday at 8 PM. Your comments are inspiring. When this dark recession started to fully manifest, it made me think “why our universities keep producing many landscape architects while the profession is so vulnerable to recession? Isn’t it unethical to produce more landscape architects while the industry cannot fully absorb all of them? “ However, more I think about it, I am more convinced that we need more highly qualified landscape architects no matter what. We just have to endure. I just stay positive and keep learning. I will take many photos in Chicago and take notes of sessions I will take and share them with my colleagues and ex-classmates who cannot go to the conference.
