My name is Justin Miron. I have a Masters in Landscape Architecture from the University of Toronto, and I am continuing my studies in Applied Digital Geography and GIS at Ryerson University's Chang School. I currently work here
This is a website devoted to my interests - both professional and personal/artistic. It deals with varied material, but centers on a general theme of the design and analysis of landscapes and their function.
I'm a landscape architect by training, but I have a current and growing skill and interest in digital geography and analysis for design - what has most recently been popularized as "GeoDesign". In my ongoing study and practice in Geographic Information Science (GIS), and my interest in understanding and designing large and complex, or "Big" landscapes, I think landscapes (and they are all very complex) are things to be understood quantitatively just as much as they are to be modified and built. I think that posing creative questions, as opposed to putting forth answers to ill-defined problems, is a really important aspect of design and will be essential in the coming years.
Some of my work includes small objects - or details - that have been made for (mostly) my personal enjoyment and my desire to learn how things get built.
I sketch, paint, and make charcoal drawings, and some of this work will (eventually) end up on this website. Most drawings are given away as gifts or are kept by me, buT occasionally I will put them up for purchase.
