About this course:
The Capstone Project Studio is an intensive course in which students develop a comprehensive and creative final design project that reflects their special interests and demonstrates the theory, skills, and knowledge acquired over the two-and-a-half prior years of study in the Landscape Architecture Program. Students select individual projects and complete the Capstone Studio Project in 12 weeks. Small studio groups meet twice weekly under instructor guidance to review work in progress. Class sessions include discussion of design theory and process, programming, design concepts, and graphic communication. The student will prepare for weekly critiques and meet milestones. Completed projects are presented before instructors, guidance committee members, and local professionals at approximately week 11.
