Every architect wants to be a landscape architect these days. And now the Vancouver Courier has caught on:

“We’re more of a passive, quiet crowd,” said [Margot] Long [principal of PWL Partnership, a local landscape architecture firm, won an award for her plan for Southeast False Creek, for Town and Gown Square at SFU and for her master plan for Mountain View Cemetery], the daughter of an architect. “It’s very interesting. You talk to architects and you talk to landscape architects and I think it’s like talking to night and day. There are some more aggressive landscape architects, more sort of self-promoting architects, but, for the most part, we’re kind of behind the scenes, fly under the radar screen, just get things done and have an impact that way.”
