. . . which should be left to those with expertise

I read the article on landscape design by Michael Kaner in the February issue of AJ Focus with a large amount of disdain and incredulity.

Has he never heard of chartered landscape architects?

These are the very professionals who deal with the design and construction of the external environment - an environment, some would argue, that is more important than the environment of buildings. Consider: all buildings are surrounded by space, a space everyone travels through whether entering a building or just 'admiring' it.

As a landscape architect I would never consider designing a building. So why should an architect consider designing the external environment?

The author should seek to promote a collaborative approach between architect and landscape architect, rather than show a disregard for the landscape architect which only serves to fuel professional contempt.
