I was wandering around the local outdoor mall with kids and became curious about some aspects of the mall. There are fish ponds and flower beds, rose gardens and trees. But what I have a question about is things large hardscapes. Things like fountains, the facade of stores which are not load bearing walls, the second floor bridges from one side to the other. Are these types of things designed by architects or Landscape architects?
I guess what I'm really trying to find out is, how far into the design of hardscapes and buildings do LA's go?
Any help would be great.
