Hi Brandon, These are not really pain points. They’re more fine tuning issues. I push the importance of a landscape architect in almost all my jobs. Its that important to me and the buildings I work on. That said I get a real range of quality in the documentation that I get (same could be said for architects work as well). Clients find it sometimes harder to understand these drawings than the building plans. Anything that brings the landscape design to life. I would like to also see from the Landscape architects I have worked with ideas that might go outside the original brief. Hope that makes sense Brandon Reed, Designer and Landscape Architect.
thanks for your feedback and info share Luke. i would love to hear more detailed info on what you mean when you say “Anything that brings the landscape design to life.” Please elaborate if you wouldn’t mind on this sentence.
Hi Brandon I guess I just mean a lot of the landscape architects drawings I see are very basic an unemotional. They communicate the design well to other landscape architects or myself but not to the client. The best responses I get from clients are not when I show them plans or sections of buildings but when I show them perspectives they can understand. I havnt seen this done with landscape architects work but perhaps there are better ways to show the design than plans. Even previous work examples of a particular idea gets a better engagement than me showing drawings. Sorry not sure if that helps.
