  1. did you do your course in ireland? im from ireland too but i’m starting a
    landscape architecture course this september at Kington uni in london…how
    many years was your course?

  2. wow 5 years? my course is 3 years for the same BA and i only needed 320
    points! (although i had an interview for the course +had to make a
    portfolio)…cheers for replying

  3. Eddie, you mentioned your mentor been an African American however I did not
    notice any African American in your office or video. I think you are an
    inspiration to all and I encourage you to extend your gift to minorities
    who desperately need some doors opened.

  4. i totally respect that he made enough money playing football to buy a
    landscape architecture firm, but i have trouble looking at those trite
    1970s designs and listening to him talk about innovation in the field. I
    would be willing to bet my next paycheck that Mr. George has never read
    Charles Waldheim or James Corner.

  5. Sir; I am a registered Architect in the state of Texas with 10 years of
    experience and a product of a HBU; an I say this to emphasize my direct
    experience in the profession today concerning minorities and their plight.

  6. Kudos to you cuz, but the African people have been in America long enough
    to know why we came here for and how we have been treated by the majority.
    My take is that, as an afro person, I have to set up my own direction in
    life and try to be the best at what I am doing. It doesn’t matter if you
    are a genius in a racially founded society and state; you have to set your
    own path and bring about others. I respect eddy for being his own man and
    hopefully others like you are setting the example.

  7. Egyptians DNA? What is that? Many of the most prominent western
    egyptologist used to call ancient egyptians European BLACKS! That’s enough
    to show the ridicule of even engaging in this discussion. Europe, as
    western europe, appear in world history for the first time in the form of a
    legend 1000BC! How much history was already written when Europe appeared in
    the pages of mankind consciousness? God only knows! Europe as a cultural
    concept, is a child compared to Africa!

  8. sir, please I need your help. does landscape architecture programs require
    a lot of MATH like engineering. cause I hate math. please reply me back

  9. @ipodojunkie hey I’m going to post this page up on my facebook fan page
    called Landscape Architects, would love you to become a member. I’m also a
    Landscape Architect, studied in Ireland and then England, now working in
    Israel.

  10. if there are any new landscape architecture students out there that are
    looking for some tutorials say for Sketchup ( a free and very useful tool
    through Google) or ArcGis, check out my channel for tutorials. I want to
    help the community

  11. So, what’s up with this video? In the description, Mr. George is referred
    to as a landscape architect. On his firm’s webpage, it says nothing about
    his actually being licensed. If he’s not really a landscape architect, then
    it seems odd that ASLA would have chosen him to talk about how great it
    is…to be a landscape architect. If he is a landscape architect, then it’s
    not clear why that is not included in his list of credentials on his firm’s
    webpage.

  12. No time to convince my self – I am just doing it… BTW It doesn’t snow
    everywhere in the world in winter – we would be plowing mud! Now stop being
    so bitter 🙂

  13. I have studied landscape architecture in germany, but here in germany the
    job has no future. Landscape architecture and design has less significance.
    Definitely this profession is really interesting, but sadly in most cases
    without future.
