Sky Gardens ~
Travels in Landscape Architecture

By Linda S. Velazquez, ASLA Associate, LEED AP, Publisher

What do you get when you cross a landscape in the sky with an ecological designer, greenroof website publisher, and an international flight attendant?  Why, a column entitled “Sky Gardens ~ Travels in Landscape Architecture” of course!

Stuttgart, New York, Machu Picchu, Athens, Mexico City, Seattle, Amsterdam…

Welcome to the ramblings of my unique bird’s eye perspective of the world, as I continue to visit new cities and noteworthy landscape architecture projects ~ both at ground and greenroof level.

Publisher's May 25, 2008 Update:  I inaugurated my Sky Gardens ~Travels in Landscape Architecture column back in June, 2003 with the great - albeit unrealistic - intention of contributing a monthly or least bi-monthly column...But along with my other hats listed above, I continue to compile The Greenroof Projects Database, publish The Greenroofs of the World™ Calendar series, and I'm also writing and hosting our brand new Web TV Series, aptly entitled - what else? "Sky Gardens ~ Greenroofs of the World™" - not to mention keeping an eye on all the activities of our three adult "kids."

So, I created the new Blog, Sky Gardens ~ where cool green meets lofty blue, to take the column's place.  Plus, now you can get quick stories and happenings from all of our Contributing Editors!  So visit the blog to get our personal takes on green architecture in the news and much more including interviews, etc.
