dc.description.abstractPotential is what landscape architects design for. Potential is the catalyst of passion, purpose, and the will to make the world better. It seems foolish to suggest that landscape architects can forget what they are designing for, but it is entirely true in the design field. It is easy to get caught up in the act of design, easy to use the unique opportunity to make a place an icon representative of the designer, rather than a reflection of existing conditions and circumstances. It is the responsibility of a designer to channel the desire to represent his or herself in the design opportunity, into a productive, intelligent, and passionate expression of place. Designers have the unique opportunity to use their holistic understanding of spatiality and of human behavior to mold lost landscapes into prospective places. It is the responsibility of the designer to consider human behavior in the design of their spaces. The three parts of this thesis aim to show the necessity of understanding place for designers and the approachable process that a designer may go through in order to understand how to design for the idea of place.en_US
