When Michael Todoran, executive producer of the Landscape Architecture Podcast received an email from Braulio Gutierrez, one of his former Ohio State University peers, about software recommendations other than AutoCAD and Adobe Suite, he knew he needed to bring in another expert. Vectorworks’ Product Marketing Manager for the landscape industries, Eric Gilbey, PLA, ASLA, Prof. Member APLD, was ultimately interviewed by Todoran, so his podcast listeners could learn more about our software capabilities, and why it should become Gutierrez’s new preferred software.

At the crux of our philosophy, we’ve always been committed to developing the best design and BIM software that’s in tune with the needs of designers. To do so, we’ve leveraged input and implemented product feedback from practicing architects, landscape designers, landscape architects, and lighting designers, among other design professionals. Another vital part of these efforts involves the help of our internal industry experts on our product marketing team, so we’re excited to announce that there are three new additions to this ever growing group: Luc Lefebvre, senior architect product specialist, Jim Woodward, senior entertainment product specialist and Brian Nicholson, senior landscape product specialist. After all, there’s no such thing as having too many industry experts.

Group projects can inspire a sense of dread in the hearts of even the toughest design students. The idea of compromising your design aesthetic, giving up a little bit of control, or working with someone who doesn’t pull their weight can be terrifying, but overall group projects have an unfair reputation. Some of the best projects come from group work, and it’s likely that you’ll have to work with others throughout your professional career, which means it’s time for an attitude overhaul. So, in the spirit of collaboration, we gathered some advice from both current and recent students on how to make your group projects more successful, and hopefully more enjoyable.

Environmental sustainability begins with individual designers using careful calculations to make informed decisions about their projects. And for the full-service landscape architecture team at Holcombe Norton Partners, achieving sustainability certifications for their sites centers around the use of data-rich models and intelligent worksheets.

April is a big month for designers, and we’re not saying that just because the 2016 Vectorworks Design Summit is right around the corner. Another reason we’re welcoming April with open arms is because it’s World Landscape Architecture Month (WLAM). Established by the American Society of Landscape Architecture (ASLA), WLAM is dedicated to showcasing how spaces designed by landscape architects around the world affect our daily lives.

Educating others comes naturally to soon-to-be-elevated ASLA Fellow Mary Bates. With an elementary school teacher as a mother, Bates has been involved with the teaching process from an early age and has worked to educate others about the importance of the landscape industry throughout her entire career. As such, her recognition from the ASLA for service is no surprise—to everyone except her, at least. “It’s a bit surreal for me,” Bates says. “There are so many Fellows whom I look up to and whose work I follow, so it seems crazy to me that I’m included in this group of talented people.”
