Why is Landscape Architecture so important?

“I could talk a lot about landscape architecture, but one thing is for sure- It is the most beautiful profession in the world. Not because we can learn a lot about everything, but because it teaches us the right view of the world, its importance and the way in which we can change it so that it becomes a better place to live, combining art and science. Maybe we are not yet aware that the world is in the hands of the landscape architects. I could not imagine someone being a landscape architect and that he does not like nature, animals, and people. Anyone can get a diploma of landscape architecture, but not everyone will bring unconditional love to this job. Because of that, I totally agree with the words of Frank Lloyd Wright: “Talent is good, practice is better, passion is best”.

“Inspired by many ideas and plans, I will try hard to partially contribute the development of landscape architecture as a profession and promote it especially in my country. Landscape architecture is our future and I am very glad to be one of the many people in this profession.”

Amela has contributed some excellent articles to LAN and is truly committed to promoting it both globally and nationally. We’re delighted that she made the decision to join the LA Team.
