Landscape Design 7: Advanced Design Studio
As the precursor for Capstone, with an instructor-selected site, design process, and site analysis, the student refines a program, selects goals and objectives, and prepares a design solution and documentation booklet.
What you can learn.
- Understand design's influence within an urban context and its role for impacting cultural, social, physical, environmental, political and economic change over time
- Develop a design process in placemaking, that incorporates a wide range of complex conditions in the physical environment
- Heighten perception of human scale and needs of a place, culture(s) and/or region and link these to programs and goals, as design determinates
- Realize the impact of design choices (on clients, the environment, users and the planet) for the purposes of adding value
About this course:The Advanced Design Studio is a rehearsal for the rigors of the Capstone Project. The student explores a big idea and creates a program responding to a site (site chosen by instructor). Using the design process and site analysis, the student refines a program, selects goals and objectives, and prepares a design solution and documentation booklet. This course is a required prerequisite to the Capstone Proposal and Capstone Project.
