Landscape Architecture is Place-Making

Designing something that is functional, aesthetically pleasing, socially conscious, and environmentally responsible – landscape architecture goes beyond gardens to encompass urban planning, design of multi-use transportation corridors, and restoration of natural places. From coastal design for climate change resilience to pride- and quality-of-life-enhancing community design, to exciting urban spaces like New York City's High Line, this is landscape architecture.
