First Semester Core: Landscape Architecture Design

The first of a four-term sequence of landscape design and planning studios, this course introduces the vocabulary for describing, analyzing, and designing landscapes. A series of short design exercises explores the principles and conceptual strategies for organizing and articulating landscape spaces, surfaces, elements, and materials. Design proposals will be developed and presented with drawings and models. The lecture course GSD 6212 Sustainability for Planning and Design is an integral component of GSD 1111 Landscape Architecture Design. Therefore students are required to also attend GSD 6212 Sustainability for Planning and Design. Please see course listing for more detail.
