Maya Lin's Vietnam Veterans' Memorial, Though I made not have witnessed it but it was one of the greatest projects done in a memorial based project . The panel is moved by the simplicity, honesty, and power of Lin's design: a V-shaped, sunken wall of black stone, with the names of those killed in action engraved in chronological order. To search out a loved one, a mourner will walk along the monument and find the name among the 57,661 listed. A simple yet honest approach to a design but I was not welcomed so easily with the memorial committee . Each had their own approach but Maya lin stood by believing in her design . The memorial speaked for itself " a scar in the land "

2.
I am Civil engineer, But my carrier life committed to work as landscape Architect.
3.
The impact that we have on the physical landscape and the emotional effect we can give off. Of course its wonderful being able to create something beautiful to look at, but its also about how a person feels within that space. Softscape can give off so many different feelings that impact your senses, which in turn allow you to feel emotion.

Every day it's a learning journey . I learn new things, new designs, a new approach, clients with different demands or approach.

The opportunity to build great places that people enjoy, spaces that perform ecologically, socially, economically.

Question 12 of 20
How do you handle stress and pressure?
User-Submitted Answers
1.
I can handle stress relatively ok and it makes me more productive.
2.
This is where playing sports I think has helped me the most. Every minute of every game the pressure along with stress is there. There is no ending a game early or taking yourself out of a game because the pressure is too much. I am able to take these situations and react quickly to them.I know how to focus on the task at hand and accomplish them.
Question 13 of 20
How do you evaluate success?
User-Submitted Answers
1.
If I feel that I have done all I can do on a project and I come way liking it then to me that is success.
2.
Success is not only mine. Reflection of team work. Success always calculated as per profit for company.
3.
To me success is a set personal goal of mine that I am always aiming towards. Its about those times of self reflection where you can honestly say to yourself that you are meeting your goals and are living a happy life.
4.
Personal success is evaluated by my own perspective, and believe me, I am harsh on myself. The success of the project always goes back to the public or the client.
5.
I determine success as getting the job done properly. Even if the expectations are lower, I will not consider myself successful unless I met all of my own personal requirements. Of course, I'm always trying to push my personal requirements higher and higher. I welcome opportunities to improve.
6.
Are you proud of your work? Was there anything we could change next time to do better? How does the client feel? Personally I ask myself if I've done my best. It's the sports adage you hear all the time but it's true. I can't control what the other team is going to do, all I can do is prepare as absolutely best as I can, learn as much as I can and give my all. As my friend and I usually say, I play to win and I usually do.
Question 14 of 20
Why should we hire you?
User-Submitted Answers
1.
I hope I have done lot of project design in my carrier. Those experience will be helpful to your company to do such project. So that, if you hire me you will say afterwords it was right decision.
2.
Looking at the scope of work your firm does produce, I feel confident that I would be able to bring high quality work and design ideas. Aside from Landscape Architecture knowledge, as a person I possess qualities many employers would look for in hiring a person. I am loyal, trustworthy, punctual person. I know how to be a team player.
3.
My skills parallels the kind of projects that you do in the firm. I am highly talented in computer aided design programs and rendering, and can elevate the quality of your work.
4.
You are in need of a new talent someone with fresh ideas and creative approach.
5.
Because of what I mentioned in the previous question. Judging from the job requirements and your values as a company, I truly believe I am an excellent fit. I'm very excited about giving this a go, it's not just another job interview for me.
Question 15 of 20
What is the most difficult situation you have had to face and how did you tackle it?
User-Submitted Answers
1.
Most difficult situation is to submit design quickly as per client request. So I tackled with over night work.
2.
Forgot drawings for a meeting. In the taxi I found the nearest fedex and send my files in and had them printed and picked up on our way to the meeting.
3.
When resources are not available then I feel little bit problem but I hire manual labour and tackle it.
4.
The most difficult situation I have had to face was the decision to change my major to landscape architecture. I had already completed three years of college and knew that if I switched I would be in college for seven years total. I had to decide if this was something I really wanted or not.
5.
Being stuck in one way of doing things, whether its designing or rendering. I force myself to continually learn and be aware not to get stuck.
6.
During my days at St Catherines College as a Social Officer, I was tasked to organise events for the students be it alcoholic or non-alcoholic. I was constantly cornered in situations where by law under 18s could not be at an alcoholic involved event . Where as an above 18 people would only want to attend events that had alcohol (or so that was one way to ensure full attendance ) . The only reasonable and practical situation for me was to have an alcohol station barricaded with a one-meter gap and tag everyone but those underage in different colours just so we could easily identify them. Which proved to be a success for both groups.
7.
When I first began my current job, it was my first job and I had no office experience before. My CAD skills were very basic. There was little to no training, I was plopped right in. It was a small office and everyone was very busy so there wasn't a lot of time they could take to help me. I was having a lot of trouble. The first thing I did was talk with one of our contractors who was skilled in CAD. I asked if we could meet two hours a week so I could ask some questions and we could work on specific projects together, to see how she would do it. Secondly, I studied and put in extra work before work and on the weekends to advance my skills. It really paid off, my skills and confidence grew and needless to say, my boss was happy. I learned that you really have to take the initiative to learn for yourself, and keep on learning even if the opportunity is not presented to you by your employer. Not everyone has time to train you, you've got to do a lot on your own.
8.
When I first started my position, I had no office experience. It was a small firm, so no one really had time to train me, there was no manual, I was literally introduced to everyone, shown my desk, and started a project. I was essentially fresh out of school and my CAD skills were pretty elementary. The water began to rise very quickly. I take a lot of pride in my work and it really upset me that I wasn't excelling. That's what I expect of myself. I found an opportunity in a contractor they brought on. She had some extra time so I asked her if I could sit with her for two hours a week or so and she could give me some tips in CAD. I would even pay her. I thought, hey, I might as well use this time to actually help out at work, so maybe we could go through my current projects and show me how she would tackle some of the things I was having trouble with. Since we were using files from work, I asked my boss if it was okay. He thought it was a great idea and even footed the bill for me. My CAD skills skyrocketed and I am now able to tackle pretty much anything thrown my way.
Question 16 of 20
Tell me about an accomplishment you are the most proud of.
User-Submitted Answers
1.
I had submitted my design with other experienced landscape designer. I won, I proud of that.
2.
Getting my masters degree at the age of 26. Starting a job at a prestigious firm and scaling my way up the ladder to managing projects within the first year of being an employee.
3.
When I comlete our degree program.
4.
I am most proud of being chosen to be part of the Sigma Lambda Alpha Honor Society for our class because they only choose 6 people per year.
5.
My masters project was new and unique. I am proud of it because, it was pragmatic in terms of finding a consensual design for a public square in Egypt.
6.
One of my biggest accomplishment was During my working days with Enviro Spec with Mr.Richard Tan, it did not take long for him to believe in me and to have me charged with our office at HortPark and with the queries that came along with it . One such query was a project down at seraya crescent . The project involved a 70-degree slope where the house was facing a bored mundane slope . The owner wanted some landscape to be done on it . While site surveying I realised the terrain was placed as such that during a heavy downpour the slope would cause soil erosion thus destroying anything on its way . The client also mentioned that at times she would have wild boars rampaging through her compound . With the issues in mind and the clients needs . I designed a landscape that used Drainage Cells on the slope where some cells would act as planting strips and the other as steps . In order to keep the bores out, we planted Hibiscus plants where their thorns would help to keep them out. The outcome was truly gorgeous and especially when it rained it gave a miny water feature view . The design was welcomed by the owner so well that she signed a 6month rotation contract with us and that is one of my unforgettable moments .
7.
The previous answer was one of them. I really like to pull something positive out of a seemingly bad situation. Other accomplishments I'm proud of are my overall performance at my current job, I've been given greater responsibilities, larger projects, I can anticipate what needs to be done and I know how to do it well. Personally I'm very proud of some of my cycling accomplishments. I've done two Ride the Rockies tours and a lot of century rides. I trained hard for months, stuck to it and it paid off. I rode well and had a great time. It's great to commit to that goal and see your progress and feel that accomplishment.
8.
Grad school. JI had been out of school for a long time. I was making good money, I was able to do the things I liked to do. But I knew I wanted something more. It was a huge adjustment becoming a full time student again. Some of the students coming out of undergrad had a great advantage in some areas, but I think I benefitted from my maturity and my dedication, knowing for sure that LA was what I really wanted to do. On top of all this, my wife and I had our son in the middle of my second year. I ended up only getting two Bs and the rest As. Needless to say, I consumed massive amounts of coffee.
Question 17 of 20
Give me a time when you went above and beyond the requirements for a project.
User-Submitted Answers
1.
Such case never happened in my life.
2.
For one project, the space was very intricate and very different. It was hard to understand the relationship between the building and the landscape, even through rendered sketch up views. So I had made a small walk through animation of the space so that the client was able to virtually see the space.
3.
I give you very short time.
4.
During a group project last semester for Boyne City, my group member and I worked on this project almost every day piece by piece for the whole semester. We found we were usually the only ones in studio, but realized that this would be a great opportunity to show future employers our design process from start to finish. This project was also presented to many professionals to gain knowledge of presentation skills and ended up being one of the most successful in the class.
5.
In the final submission of project, beside all the required. I added a walk through video showing the design, instead of shot. And I also provided diagram showing how the design is affected by the river's changing tide.
6.
The project at Seraya was one such project . With each project, our contractors would always do the site visits and pictures of the site but due to the nature of the site I personally went to the site and did a day and night analysis . I remember the times when I sat in my car to watch the nature of the environment and at one point question by a neighbour.
7.
Well, it wasn't necessarily a project per se, but when I started at CPRA, there was a lot of disorganization regarding computer files and a lot of things (especially in regards to CAD) that could be streamlined. In any spare time I had at work I would compile and standardize details for walls, merchandise etc. I also created CAD blocks and drawings of the merchandise used so that they could be easily copied, pasted and used over and over. This really sped design time up and I hope will make things easier for the next person who comes along.
8.
This project here. No one in the office knows SketchUp, but I ave been studying it on my own for a while now. I felt the best way to explore this project was 3d and that meant sketch. I took the project home over the weekend and developed these three concepts. I was really able to wrap my head around the space and we ended up using the models as a sketch base. The same with this LR sheet. We are essentially introducing a never before seen concept in these package gardens and some people can't even read plans, plus they're not exciting. 3D was definitely the way to go on this and again, I took it home over the weekend and busted it out. Its now used on the LR website and the first page in their sales booklet to introduce the product.
Question 18 of 20

Very co-operative with positive attitude.
2.
Very well. I have been in a team setting ever since I was very young, playing all types of sports. Through this experience I have been able understand what it takes to be a team player and play my part within this type of setting.
3.
Although I don't mind working individually. I think that I work better in a group setting because I find it helpful to bounce ideas off of each other. This gets my ideas flowing and gets me excited about projects.
4.
Very well. Working in a team is essential to my personal development. Everyone brings a new perspective.
5.
I work extremely well with people where I'm always in a team or leading a team .
6.
I love working with people. Before I got into landscape architecture I paid the bills as a bartender. It is an immensely team-based work and its in a fast paced, pressured environment. You really have to learn how to rely on others and help others whenever you can to be successful. In addition, I've worked with literally hundreds of people, some I loved, some not so much. But I always found a way to work together. In my current position, it's a collaborative environment. I value other people's opinions and I really welcome them, I ask for them. I try to put myself in their shoes whenever I can and respect their time and their hard work.
Question 19 of 20

User-Submitted Answers
1.
If job has to be do my self, my difficult task always need to submit quickly.
2.
I am try to encourage ourself.
3.
The easiest decisions are related to which programs to use and the work flow in approaching a design problem. The most difficult ones, would be knowing when to stop, or what is a "good" result for sumbittion.
4.
Easiest decisions are for making for someone, difficult ones to make is when it involves me .
5.
Well, I suppose complexity of the situation is a factor. How many people or things are going to be affected by a certain decision, how many possible outcomes will there be.
Question 20 of 20
What would be a dream project of yours?
User-Submitted Answers
1.
Something better than anything and unique. All life with together, without polluted, Energy saver.
2.
One with an unlimited budget and a large amount of land. A project that you can really get lost in your imagination, but instead of putting those ideas aside for practical reasons your able to do them.
3.
Redesigning Tahrir Square.
4.
A memorial would be my dream project .
5.
I really want to work on an adaptive reuse project. I love the idea of allowing the bones of the past show through in a modern design, to pay tribute to the historical importance of a place. I love the ideas of using materials that show the character and history of a place. Also, you get to integrate your design into the existing context, which may be a very different situation that requires some imagination.

About Landscape Architect

September 10th, 2017

Landscape architects specialize in planning and designing campuses, recreational facilities, parks, open spaces, and private homes. As part of their job, these experts prepare graphic representations of the site plan using CAD software. They also select appropriate materials, prepare cost estimates and inspect the work in progress to ensure it meets the client's specifications.
Although a bachelor's degree in landscape architecture is enough for an entry into this field, a master's degree will boost your employment prospects and open advancement opportunities. These programs include courses in surveying, landscape ecology, design and construction, plant and soil science, and regional and urban planning.
