01112: Landscape Architecture II (STU 0111200)

Landscape Architecture
Core Studio - 8 credits
Monday Wednesday Friday 2:00 - 6:00  

Instructor(s)
Anita Berrizbeitia, Jill Desimini, Romy Hecht

Course Description

Second semester core studio explores the research and design methods associated with interventions in complex urban conditions: sites layered with multiple interventions across a long span of history that present issues of connectivity, accessibility, identity, and need for contemporary programs. Students will learn to apply various forms of research - historical, social, material, spatial, and technical - to the formulation of project arguments and strategies. Emphasis will be placed on exploring the relationship between documentation, analytical research and design through diverse conceptual frameworks and projective representational techniques.

03242: Theories of Landscape Architecture (DES 0324200)

Landscape Architecture
Lecture - 4 credits
Monday 9:00 - 10:00   Gund 508
Friday 12:00 - 1:30   Gund 111
Monday 1:00 - 2:00   Gund 508

Instructor(s)
Anita Berrizbeitia

Course Description

This course will explore the 'know why' of landscape architecture since the Second World War, juxtaposing both the built works and the writings of landscape architects with texts that address methodology or the discipline's larger theoretical and cultural contexts.
Within this broad framework, the course will examine a series of topics: the quest for a modern language for landscape architecture in the 1950s and 1960s; the challenge to the profession in the later 1960s from ecology on the one hand and from art on the other; the complexity and heterodoxy of the contemporary situation, in which the social, ecological, phenomenological, and artistic dimensions of the practice struggle for reconciliation; the growing hybridization of landscape design with urbanism and architecture; and the more speculative effort on the part of some practitioners to address globalization, commercialization and simulation.
The goal of the course is to learn to read in greater depth and to see in greater detail-to recognize the visual and verbal languages that people use, how they use them, and to what end.
Evaluation will be based on class attendance and participation; brief weekly written responses to the readings; and a final paper. The course structure is one weekly lecture taught by Anita Berrizbeitia, and section meetings lead by Teaching Fellow.
