Landscape Architecture Design

This course is the second semester of a four-semester core sequence of landscape design and planning studios. In this semester, the intention is to continue the investigations begun in the fall term while expanding the scope to include more complex site and problem issues. A primary goal of the studio will be to integrate the pursuit of site issues – natural, phenomenal, cultural – with the pursuit of architectural issues, including program, spatial configuration, materials, tectonics, and expression. Programs will focus primarily on the detached house, its permutations, its attendant site considerations, and the garden. Within this set of issues, the studio will seek to integrate subject matter and technique in the related courses in technology, plants and ecology, drawing and history.
