The Landscape Institute video (on landscape architecture as a career) provides a very good overview of:
- the history of the landscape architecture profession – which has its feet in the stone age, its body in the last two centuries and its head in the future
- the extraordinarily wide range of work undertaken by the landscape architects
- the use of sketches, plans and models to convey design ideas and contractual information
One couldn’t ask more from a 6 minute video but there is, of course, much more to be said about the landscape architecture profession, including information about jobs, offices, salaries and career development paths. Entrants to the profession may also be interested in these two videos which outline the definition of landscape architecture as a professional activity.
