Every year the San Diego Architectural Foundation puts on a fundraising and educational event to bring awareness to the outstanding architecture, planning, and urban design that makes San Diego one of the best places to live. This program engages the community by promoting an interaction between the citizens and their built environment. Read on to see the Landscape Architecture projects that got recognized this year!
Would you rather, not have your sense of smell for the rest of your life or not be able to see?..
Well then would you rather not have your sight for the rest of your life or not be able to taste?..
Unless you are a foodie like me, most people value sight above all other senses. It is a security net, a memory receiver, and the main way that we absorb the world around us. The eye’s reception dominates our sensory experience. Visuals control our feelings and moods. We can feel energetic and playful in a crowd full of lights and people or feel peaceful and blissful looking at the waves crash against the shore.
When you drive through the winding roads of Del Mar, California, one house after another blows you away. Being Landscape Designers in this area, we have the challenge of continuing this theme by making a distinctive design that stands out and makes a point without having a blaring sign in front saying, “look at me.” In our recent project completed in Fall 2017, you will discover that by highlighting the natural curves of the landscape and reiterating the style of the architecture throughout the yard, we were able to subtly show off our residences’ home.
If our mindset is that someone else will fix it, then no progress will ever be made. Small adjustments to the way we live and build can make a huge impact on our world. And these are some options of how to do it…
Well, we like to call ourselves inventors, creators of an aesthetic or of an atmosphere. Each of these different projects that we propose comes from an idea. And like James Clear proposes, all of our ideas come from a system of proven ideas that have tested time and made it through the other side. We are responsible for the stewardship of our environment, but the unique perspective about our firm is that we also get to connect the user directly with their environment.
It was worth the wait, we fully enjoyed seeing this project come to life little by little. It truly became a gem within Cardiff-By-The-Sea that the owners are very proud to call their own.
