ArchRecord: Landscape/Architecture Firms Growing Closer Together

arlogo_415px1
Take the time to read Architectural Record‘s piece this week about how the sustainability movement is encouraging architecture and landscape architecture firms to work more closely together.

From the article:

As architects attempt ever more ambitious feats with green projects, the collaborative relationship between members of a design team is becoming more important. Landscape architects, in particular, are codifying their role and taking on additional responsibilities. “It is not about just dressing something that the architect gives us,” [John Loomis, ASLA] says. “We would always like to be in there right at the same time the architect starts on the project, if possible.”

Hear, hear.
