About the Author:

Charles Ward Harris, FASLA is a professor of landscape architecture emeritus at Harvard University's Graduate School of Design. During his over 30 years of teaching at Harvard he was the Chairman of his Department for ten years and for seven years Director of the LA Research Office. His teaching and research activities covered a wide range of topics: regional landscape planning and design, land and project development, landscape construction and site engineering, and design education.

Before, during, and since his many years of academic teaching, administration, and research he worked in the professional offices of such well-known landscape architects as John and Philip Simonds, Hideo Sasaki and Peter Walker, Richard Dober, and Lawrence Walquist. In addition he worked for two and a half years with The Architect's Collaborative on the planning of a new campus for the University of Baghdad. Walter Gropious was the senior principle in charge. His professional work has spanned campus planning and design, personal rapid transit (PRT) system planning and design, housing and large scale of land development in the US, the Middle East, and North and Central America. In all of his past and present teaching and professional activities he has sought collaborative opportunities to bring together people to work on projects that are socially responsible, environmentally sensitive, economically sound, and aesthetically pleasing. He holds two bachelors degrees from the University of Illinois: one in landscape architecture and one in landscape operations (construction and contracting). He also has a Master of Education degree from Harvard University. His home is in Watertown, Massachusetts.

Nicholas T. Dines, FASLA, is a professor of landscape architecture and serves as graduate MLA program director at the University of Massachusetts where for over 28 years he has taught courses in site engineering, structures, design studio, design drawing, design theory, and professional practice.

He has a bachelors degree from Michigan State University, and an MLA degree from Harvard University. His home is in Williamsburg, Massachusetts.
