Carol Franklin, FASLA

"Ecological design suggests a richer and more complex achievement – where designers will work from a deep understanding of how the world is actually put together and from this understanding will create new 'organic' designs. These designs – for buildings, landscapes, cities and regions – will, I hope, be timeless, beautiful, and functional."

-Carol Franklin, FASLA
