About this course:

This course introduces the landscape architectural design process. Emphasizing process and concept development, students identify a problem and then use site inventory, analysis, program development and exploration to test solutions. Projects are small-scale sites—preferably actual and visitable, such as intimate courtyards, street plazas and pocket parks—and/or physically built (i.e., limited use of computer drafting, rendering and 3D modeling).
