Picking on landscape architects is petty
Hopefully you will be able to read this letter, as I may be one of those bland landscape architects blending into the background that Maisie Rowe is so critical of in the article titled 'What's my line?' by Katherine Skellen (AJ 25.11.04) For your readers' information, we are chartered landscape architects and not landscape designers - terms that are not interchangeable. Petty criticism of our fellow professionals, especially in a periodical read by one of our main client groups, is unhelpful and unprofessional.
As Rowe must know herself, there is whole lot more to landscape architecture than candy-coloured Perspex tiles.
