I am a new member to Cyburbia. I joined because I want to get some feedback or advice from any professionals out there. I am a recent graduate (Fall 2004) in landscape architecture and now work for a firm in Sacramento. I am learning a wealth of information in planning and becoming an expert in CAD and photoshop, which is good. My firm works mostly on planning and designing communities (subdivisions) with some parks, cemeteries, and streetscapes thrown in. I feel as though I am contributing to sprawl when I work on these subdivisions and it is not the work I have a passion for. I have a passion for creating livable and walkable cities with an emphasis on connecting these cities with trails and bikeways. I am taking a GIS class at night at a local college here and I am debating on going back to get my masters in urban design. Does anyone out there have any good advice or share the same interests?
