Laurie Olin on “urban design”

 We in landscape architecture would argue that urban design isn’t a discipline, it’s an activity that lots of disciplines do together. It’s ensemble work. None of us can control it and none of us can do it all. It’s one of the things we do when we play together well…Together we can do something better than we can do by ourselves.

From a Q+A he recently did for The Architects Newspaper here
