Finis.

How appropriate to finish on a post from Frederick Law Olmsted – a man who constantly re-invented himself while ‘inventing’ the profession of landscape architecture.  So in that spirit of re-invention – my time and focus has shifted to my growing business, my studies, and other pursuits both professional and personal.

Blogging has also changed – and the profession(s) have benefit from this for the most part… there’s a whole new generation of folks out there talking, discussing, and elevating the profession of landscape architecture, the pursuit of vegitecture, and the quest for enlightened urbanism.  I hope to do the same still, but in a different format – so i figure it is time to hang up the blog – 835 posts and 4.5 years later – for good this time.  Consider it my Independence Day.  I’m going to keep it visible, but not update anymore – as there’s some good reading in there.

I hope you all have enjoyed it as much as i have.  Keep in touch!

  1. Thanks so much, Jason, for spearheading blogging on these topics so early in the game and for persisting in thoughtful, considered and generous writing. I continue to refer to past posts — as I’m sure others will as well — and do wish you the best in future and ongoing pursuits. You must feel a huge expanse has opened! To the field, to evolution and to reflection: Cheers!

  2. Thanks Jason! I have to give you credit for my excitement and passion for landscape architecture. Your blog was always a ‘one-stop-shop’ for all things related to landscape architecture and in my last couple years at NDSU it became a great late procrastination tactic :). I really appreciated your dedication to the profession and wish you all the best in all that you do.

  3. I’ve never understood where you found the time to create so much content – and pursue all of the other elements of your life and career.
    I’ve appreciated and benefitted from Landscape+Urbanism and the ideas presented there. Thanks for all of your work.
    Take best care,
    Joseph

  4. Wow, shattered to see that this blog has come to an end.
    I’m sure it will continue to inspire and educate for years to come. A monumental work. Thanks for sticking to it for so long!
    I’ll keep following you at terra.fluxus.

  5. I stumbled upon your blog from someone’s link once and followed it ever since. I loved reading your posts and learning so much from your writing and thoughts.

    Thank you so much!
