Recommendations ~ Architecture and Urban Planning

Linda's thesis is a wonderful exercise in urban and spatial celebration of the radial city pattern found in a particular downtown commercial/residential area.  When she wrote her thesis her design work seemed a bit fanciful, but today some of the trends she foretold and if not designed have been given real form.  In short, she reads the city well.  She is a good designer and planner.  Linda would be a great addition to your program."

~ David C. Perry, Professor, School of Architecture and Planning, SUNY Buffalo

"Linda is a willing and creative worker, quick to discern situations and carry forward the work to be done.  She is a gifted architect, artist, city planner and now an educator who is able to combine two disparate fields.  She is also a futurist and has much to contribute to society.  I can easily recommend her as one who will seize upon the challenges and work to be done, and responsibly run with the tasks."

~ Anne Taylor, PhD., Hon. AIA, Anne Taylor and Associates

"Linda has excellent skills in making things happen both with people and with various media techniques.  Her passion, creativity and perseverance are truly a source of inspiration for me and for other people that she comes in contact with.

I give you my highest recommendation for Linda and know that any organization that is fortunate enough to have her on their team will benefit from her energy, knowledge, creative solutions, and professionalism. She will be greatly missed in New Mexico."

~ Kate Wilson, Manager-Lead Teacher, Manzanita Early Learning Center

Linda is a dedicated architect and planner.  She completed the near-Herculean task of acquiring two graduate professional degrees during her graduate years at U.B..  There are VERY few students with the intellectual capacity and the professional commitment to complete this task.  She is to be commended for what she did and how well she did it".

~ David C. Perry, Professor, School of Architecture and Planning, SUNY Buffalo

"Linda's interest in pursuing an ecologically sounder basis for settlement and building design decisions is extremely timely.  Pursuing that interest from the perspective of cross-cultural studies follow in an honored tradition, drawing upon the work of people as diverse as Amos Rapport. Paul Oliver, and Martin Pawley.  Linda has the capacity to make an important contribution to our present understanding of the use of material resources."

"Linda's greatest academic strength, which lead her to undertake a dual degree program, was in urban design."
