President Ted Landsmark stated, “This year’s graduates have experienced building and environmental challenges from 9/11 through Katrina, Haiti, the housing market collapse, and the Gulf Oil Spill. They have developed skills in sustainable design including the inter-disciplinary design and construction of a Solar Decathlon House. They are among the most diverse design school graduates in America, and they include our first Landscape Architecture graduates. They have already demonstrated leadership in designing accessible, affordable, innovative, and environmentally sensitive projects. We are proud of what they have accomplished working with varied clients, and we look forward to the great contributions they will make to the design fields for many years to come.”
