It might seem that the previous strategies can lead to projects that are finished once the designers are done: Queens Plaza has been reinvented, Cabo has been re-desertified. But these projects need ongoing maintenance, and not just the mowing and pruning type. Someone needs to watch as the landscape changes, and there is no landscape on the planet that is not in a perpetual process of change. Even a concrete wall weathers. One of the roles of the designer that is not often made explicit is as agent engaging in the landscape as it grows and changes.
