Abstract

RESEARCH IN LANDSCAPE ARCHITECTURE, 2.0 In our introduction to Landscape Journal 33:1 we discussed a number of environmental and social changes underway that will most certainly influence research in landscape architecture. In our editorial comments at the beginning of LJ 33:2, we laid out a series of research non-negotiables--those important factors that defi ne research and, if missing, undermine the reliability, validity, and utility of our work in promoting new understandings regarding the questions we are examining. In this essay, we once again proclaim the surety of rapid change and ask how should landscape architectural research respond in future? We believe design research will increase in relevance and importance in the years to come. Historical Case for Landscape Architectural Research In order to gaze into the future of design research, we set the stage with a little history. From the mid-1960s through the early-1980s, landscape architecture's quest to redefi ne and better understand itself led to two important documents now considered historic: Albert Fein's 1972 report entitled A Study of the Profession of Landscape Architecture: Technical Report (commonly referred to as the "Fein Report"), and the Council of Educators in Landscape Architecture 1980 Conference Proceedings: Research in Landscape
