The Essential Work of a Landscape Architect

Most people seem to miss the intention behind all public outdoor spaces - designed by landscape architects - to preserve the environment and serve the public. Creating safe places for people to connect while working with nature makes our profession meaningful and critical to our future, but it seems that much of the daily work of landscape architects goes by unnoticed, unaware, and unrecognized.

In an article titled, “An enormous responsibility: The misunderstood and essential work of landscape architects," Torey Carter-Conneen aims “to improve public understanding of landscape architecture." We hope this serves as a source of clarification, insights, and inspiration. More importantly, we hope that it helps you see the intention behind any outdoor space.
