Do you see any valuable potentials in Landscape design/ Landscape Architect?
Hi, I like this wording of "asleep". It makes sense to me. This field is something that it has always been around but not really built into our system. The thing is, that many landscape architecture and landscape designs comes from architects, I think this is a little bit strange. I think that is too much to take for architects. Personalising landscapes idea is a quite interesting point. We often divide parks and public squares into "public", "semi-public" "semi-private" and "private" in terms of atmosphere. Maybe it appears more to people if there are more detailed separation in landscape designs. Thanks for the very interesting comment!!

Hello Colleen, thanks for the comment. That sounds very interesting!!! There are so many big big ideas and big structures out there now. I replied to Laurens below with a little bit of my background. I love nature but since I started to learn Landscape architecture at Uni it made me realise that it is not only way to protect our environment that we protect the nature and use green status but also landscapes including pavement can change people's lives. Do you know any good project that you recommend me to have a look at?

Hello Laurens, yes that is true indeed!! It may or may not change your view a little bit, but I am from Japan and in fact I have got a lot to think about right now about changing people's lives dramatically. Talking about irrelevant stuff, huge part of my home country has been destroyed by the disaster and manmade nuclear damage was also huge, I can not "not" think about what we need in our society right now to be honest. Although I am still living in the UK and have not been back since then, and also my home town had not much impact and so I can just live without thinking about what change we need in the near future on top of my head. However I did think about it. It was just a simple thought of "Life without power plant", then expanded to life without power plant with different landscape value. I think this is quite a simple but interesting starting point. What do you think?

Hello Enrico, thanks for the link. I have seen this when it came out. I have always come across with those great ideas related to much more with science (Biology and ecology mostly) and made me want to just study science instead of landscape architecture/ design. Same to permaculture. The main reason I brought this topic is because I thought Landscape design or the purpose of learning landscape architecture is because we need to understand something much further (I am sorry but I don't know what yet of course!) Applying scientific solution and investigating on landscape is absolutely great I think, but just because I had some time to think, I thought there may be some significant connections in all those great designs that I have not noticed.
