Abstract

In this article, Frederick Steiner, the interviewee, introduced the teaching system of PennDesign and its strengths and innovations, and explained the relationship between research, education, and practice based on his rich teaching and practice experience. He also gave suggestions about how to optimize the Landscape Architecture education and curriculum to keep up with the changing world. Steiner indicated that both the Sustainable SITES Initiative which he has made great efforts on and his latest book Making Plans can contribute to the professional training and public education. When it came to significant issues or promising topics that Landscape Architecture professionals need to pay more attention on the future, Steiner called for focus on the role of Landscape Architecture in the city, and climate changes and settlements to vulnerable populations, and highlighted the importance of taking a long view and designing with time.
