21st Century Design
Beyond the Classroom
The inside scoop on happenings outside the classroom. Faculty and students share stories about experiences, projects and life beyond the brick & mortar of the classroom.
Wondering what that class is really about? Faculty provide a behind-the-scenes look at individual courses and unpack what will be learned to help potential students understand what to expect.
Design moves forward when rules are broken. Faculty showcase ongoing research projects that challenge the status quo or cause people to rethink the approach to a problem.
Great design is felt. Faculty and students tell stories of moments that words alone cannot express.
Capture wisdom from our students & professors from around the globe. Faculty and students tell of their research projects overseas and international students tell of their experience on campus.
Our alums are our brand ambassadors. Alumni discuss work projects, experience and opportunities afforded them from the education and degree received in Landscape Architecture at Illinois.
Opinions, culture and viewpoints from voices around campus. Faculty share perspectives on hot topics, themes and trends regarding all things landscape architecture.
