A thriving system is worth a thousand renderings.
When I read Jenni Zell’s post, Fulfilling the Promise of Our Pictures, I took her questions posed to the profession as a whole, personally. What can I do early in my career to better include scientific processes in the stories of beautiful spaces? I pursued this career for its combination of science and art, and I’m eager for that hands-on, in the field, scientific method. How can we integrate it into our practice? It’s an exciting and daunting challenge, and so much more complicated than a Pinterest-famous rendering can tackle.
Over the past year, my first in the profession, I have observed that landscape architecture is a true juggling act that requires a continual coordination of complex systems to create beautifully functional landscapes. Jenni’s thoughtful post hit upon key points to consider moving forward, igniting a multitude of questions that stuck with me. I am looking forward to continuing the discussion with my colleagues.
