Donald H. Brandes, Jr., PLA, ASLA Emeritus

What do you think is the most important issue facing landscape architects today? Without a question, the issue of sustainability and climate change is and has been the most compelling issue facing all the planning and design professions. The training, expertise, and commitment of landscape architects to demonstrate how construction and related capital improvements directly affect our health and welfare is timely and critical. Landscape architects are in a unique position to demonstrate how the land and water can be shaped to better create sustainable and more healthy environments. What have you gained by being a member of ASLA for 40 years? To be sure, as with any professional organization the ASLA is a “society” of professionals that share a common desire to improve the world we live in and to leave behind a legacy of public and private improvements for people to enjoy. ASLA offers its members the opportunity to explore new and innovative methods and techniques of professional practice. In addition, and perhaps more importantly, ASLA provides the venue to critically reflect on how we need to be better stewards of the land and water.

Jacinta McCann, FASLA

How did you begin your career journey in Landscape architecture? My father was a civil engineer and encouraged me to study landscape architecture. At that time, the first undergraduate degree in Landscape architecture at UNSW had been established for 3 years, and had not yet graduated any students! Upon graduation I worked in a multidisciplinary design firm for 10 years before joining EDAW in Sydney in 1991. What do you think is the most important issue facing landscape architects today? Leadership in making comprehensive impact at scale across compromised and ageing urban infrastructure (social, economic, environmental) in the face of climate change. What would you share with others as a reason for belonging to ASLA as a member? ASLA provides a critical continuing educational role for young landscape architects as they establish their careers.
