With decades of experience both on the West coast and in Atlanta, native New Yorker Kevin McCarthy knows deep down being all mixed up has proven to be a boon. He believes it allows for deep experiences to be drawn from all those locales. They inform and contribute to every new design’s sense of place and quality of sui generis. Which, Kevin says, is apt for today’s time of blended project types, delivery mechanisms, vertically integrated mixed use, public /private partnerships and landscapes on/in/over buildings!
Both the market and popular press have finally caught up to what we landscape architects do. The environment demands our attention. And who would have thought that contributing to public health would re-emerge as a defining characteristic of our profession and our designed outdoor places? It is a beautiful day.
