ASLA Emerging Professionals Firm Visit – with John Pearson of O|CB, The Office of Cheryl Barton

Visit write-up by Paul Dillingham

As part of ASLA-NCC’s Emerging Professionals program, a group of  approximately 20 students and practitioners visited the Office of Cheryl Barton in San Francisco on February 20 from 6:30-8 pm. To give an overview of the design and green urbanism practices of O|CB,  Associate John Pearson took visitors through informal presentations of several current projects. Afterwards John answered questions relating to his own decision to become a landscape architect; his interests and motivations; what he thinks of the future of the profession; the importance of sharing ideas with other professionals; and career decisions for other young professionals. Attendees discussed how a small office works on a daily basis; how to balance productivity, scheduling, and career development; and the art of successful proposals and interviews. After the event several of the attendees enjoyed a beer together at The Willow.
