First Lady Michelle Obama hosted a White House luncheon for the winners and finalists of the 2010 National Design Award held July 21, 2010 and gave an excellent introduction speech for the event.  Give it a view; it is well worth your time, especially for the shout out to Landscape Architects at the 30 second mark.  Describing design related careers as revealing as creating and revealing beauty in design solutions that meet at the intersection of art and science, the First Lady quotes the great jazz musician Miles Davis for inspiration; “Don’t play what’s there, play what’s not there”.
