As some of you know I will be going after an MLA in 2009 (hopefully). What I would like as a life career would be to work in Urban Sustainable Design/Ecological Restoration. I somewhat want to involve both Urban Design and Ecological/Sustainable Development. To get a better grasp of what I want to do I would like to restore and design green spaces within cities that are functional ecologically and aesthitically that citizens could use. When looking at various programs I see that many offer a concentration in Urban Design and also Ecological Restoration.
My question is if I want to do Urban Sustainable/Ecological Design should I shose Urban Design or Ecological Restoration? Does it even matter? I feel that Urban Design is something that can be easily picked up on, while Ecological Restoration not so much. I am kind of leaning towards Ecological Restoration. For those of you in the field or who know what are your thoughts or ideas?
