Isabel Hinsch LANDSCAPE ARCHITECTURE PORTFOLIO


THERE ARE NO RIGHT ANSWERS, ONLY BETTER SOLUTIONS. In studying landscape architecture I have learned to be a puzzle solver, treasure hunter, and master of the circle template. This portfolio represents the sum of my attempts to find better solutions and the skills that I have developed in their pursuit.
