dc.description.abstractAs a profession, Landscape Architects have a responsibility to design for the good of the public and are equipped with the skills to engage communities and translate ideas into physical reality. This research aims to increase the effectiveness of private practice Landscape Architects as contributors to public interest design through a better understanding of the organizational models and methods being used in practice. Through an analysis of the literature and data collected from interviews, this research articulates the challenges and opportunities of Landscape Architecture firms formalizing design initiatives and developing non-profits. The research identifies processes and resources that differ from traditional commercial practice, and presents the value that public interest design can add to the future of Landscape Architecture.en_US
