About this course:

This course introduces the student to the landscape architectural design process, emphasizing site inventory, analysis, program, design process, and concept development. Projects are mid- to large-scale sites you can actually visit, such as civic plazas, freeway capping projects, downtown urban redevelopment, etc. The design program for each project is defined by the instructor. Presentation graphics are both hand-drawn and/or physically built. Students also use computer modeling, rendering, 3D modeling, InDesign, Sketchup, and Photoshop. Final presentation products utilize hand graphics with blended use of CAD and 3D modeling as background support only.
