"each took away their own new ideas"

"However, the first Harvard studio – the Delmarva studio – has not been given the credit it deserves. This studio was insignificant in terms of actual content, but its influence lay in the stimulation of ideas in its visiting faculty. Don Belcher of Cornell, Phil Lewis of Wisconsin, Ian McHarg of Pennsylvania and Angus Hills of Canada all participated in this studio, and each took away their own new ideas about the potential of digital databases for analyzing geographic data."
