Transcript edited by Herb Schaal. This interview was conducted at the home of Herb Schaal in Colorado on May 10, 2007. In the interview, Schaal discusses: helping his father, a landscape architect originally from Germany, on projects during Schaal’s childhood; his time at California State Polytechnic University studying under Richard Moore, later president of EDAW in the late 1960s and 1970s; teaching at NC State University and State University of New York at Syracuse; joining EDAW and working on noteworthy projects like the transmission line siting study for the Pacific Gas and Electric Company; founding the Fort Collins, Colorado, office of EDAW and working on projects for the National Parks Service; his pride in receiving the ASLA President’s Award for the Summer Student Program; his approach to design and his devotion to landscape architecture’s basic agenda of art, society, and ecology; and integrating his work and his personal life and how it positively affected his office culture.
