LANDSCAPE DESIGN AND THE MODERN HIGHWAY

DESPITE THE GREAT TECHNOLOGICAL ACCOMPLISHMENTS OF THE UNITED STATES, A MATURE APPROACH TO PROBLEMS OF PHYSICAL PLANNING AND OUTDOOR ESTHETICS AS THEY RELATE TO LARGE AND SMALL LAND AREAS HAS NOT BEEN ASSUMED. THE LANDSCAPE ARCHITECT IS IN THE MOST IMPORTANT POSITION OF ANY MEMBER OF A DESIGN PROFESSION TO SOLVE THE BROAD AS WELL AS THE MINUTE AND DETAILED PROBLEMS OF HIGHWAY ESTHETICS. SINCE THE BEGINNING OF HIGHWAY SYSTEMS, THE CIVIL ENGINEER HAS ALWAYS BEEN REGARDED AS INDISPENSABLE FOR HANDLING THE TECHNICAL ENGINEERING PHASES. THE TIME HAS ARRIVED WHEN THERE MUST BE CLOSER COLLABORATION BETWEEN THE PRACTITIONERS OF THESE TWO PROFESSIONS TO SECURE IDEAL INTEGRATION AND CORRELATION OF EFFORT IN SOLVING THE COMPLEX PROBLEMS OF DESIGN OF THIS LINEAR ELEMENT IN THE LANDSCAPE. /AUTHOR/
