To record and share the stories, intentions, and impacts of emerging and established landscape architects.
As a discipline, landscape architecture has distanced itself from gardening, and landscape architects take pains to distinguish themselves from gardeners or landscapers. Landscape architects tend to imagine gardens from the office, representing plants with drawings or other simulations, whereas gardeners work in the dirt, in real time, planting, pruning, and maintaining. In Overgrown, Raxworthy calls for the integration of landscape architecture and gardening.

Today’s conversation is centered around a post-industrial site on the north-eastern edge of Paris, known as Chapelle Charbon, that is soon to become a new public park for the city of Paris. As a former rail depot, the 6.5 hectare (or 16 acre) site will be developed in several phases over the next decade.

What would a school look like if it was designed with mental health in mind? Too many public schools look and feel like prisons, designed out of fear of vandalism and truancy. But we know that nurturing environments are better for learning. Research consistently shows that access to nature, big classroom windows, and open campuses reduce stress, anxiety, disorderly conduct, and crime, and improve academic performance.

Excellent podcast for and about Landscape Architects
Michael Toderan’s podcast is an incredible window into the diversity of landscape architecture practice and thought. The breadth of interview topics and people is amazing. Michael skillfully leads conversations that flow naturally from projects to current issues in design to our role and responsibility as landscape architects to ensure environmental, social, and racial justice.
The Landscape Architecture Podcast is a great resource. Always looking forward to the next episode!
It’s like Leslie Knope and Vox had a baby.
Love the podcast, lose the guitar plz
First of all I love this podcast. I am very glad that landscape architecture has a podcast presence and I appreciate all the work that goes into it.
However, the slow guitar intro and outro on some of the recent episodes is driving me crazy! I don’t think it fits the vibe at all. Every time I hear it I impulsively want to turn it off.
I’m still gonna give five stars because I like the podcast, but please reconsider the music!
