Course Description

This course surveys the history of landscape from antiquity to 1800 by focusing on particular gardens, cities, and landscapes, primarily in the Western world, which represent issues of importance to the trajectory of landscape architecture. For each location considered, the course seeks to understand the relations between the site and designed forms, and those political and economic structures that helped determine them. Students read from a range of commentary, to which they respond critically in writing and in class discussion.
