About the Author:

Barry W. Starke has been a leader in the profession of landscape architecture for more than 40 years. He graduated with a degree in landscape architecture from the College of Environmental Design at the University of California, Berkeley, in 1967. While at Berkeley, he was introduced to the first edition of Landscape Architecture, which became a major influence on his career. In 1974, Mr. Starke co-founded the award-winning, multidisciplinary landscape architecture and environmental design firm Earth Design Associates, Inc., and continues to serve as President. In 1988, he was elected to the faculty of the University of Virginia School of Architecture, where he taught Professional Practice. Mr. Starke served as the Centennial President of the American Society of Landscape Architects in 1999, leading ASLA's 100th-anniversary celebration. He is a Fellow of the ASLA, is a member of the American Institute of Certified Planners, and served as Chairman of the Renewable Natural Resources Foundation. In 2003, Mr. Starke received the inaugural M. Meade Palmer Medal for outstanding contributions to landscape architecture. He is the 2010 recipient of the VA ASLA Landmark Award and Honor Award in Communications for the fourth edition of Landscape Architecture.

John Ormsbee Simonds, who died in May 2005, was one of the twentieth century's most important figures in landscape architecture and environmental planning. He was recognized worldwide for his visionary thinking and innovative spirit. Mr. Simonds's work and career spanned more than 70 years, bridging an era during which the profession of landscape architecture expandedfrom a small number of individuals in the early 1900s to more than 30,000 land use and environmental planners in the United States today. His many contributions, including Landscape Architecture, helped lay the groundwork for today's focus on environmentally responsible planning and design. Mr. Simonds was President and a Fellow of the American Society of Landscape Architects, which awarded him its highest honor, the ASLA Medal, and its one-time Centennial President's Medal. He was a member of the President's Task Force on the Environment and Florida Governor's Task Force on Natural Resources, and was a Fellow of the Royal Academy of Design in Great Britain.
