“Landscape Architect should try to do everything but not just be a designer.”

“Though designers’ influence on daily life is slow, but it is huge – think how many people enjoy the community they live at. Every year there are so many people visiting central park – in 15 years that number equals to the US population.”

“It is important to expose students to as many scenarios as possible, to take descriptive critical mapping into action.”
