About this course
In this course, participants develop their own theoretical and philosophical framework for the practice of landscape architecture and more broadly, for understanding the processes and dynamics of the built environment. Group discussions are key to building a deeper understanding of the material and are a way for a cohort to consider collectively both common and unique perspectives about design. Your willingness to participate is fundamental to a free exchange of ideas and observations.
For each Tuesday meeting, students attend Introduction to Landscape Architecture lectures, and those set the weekly topic schedule for discussion sessions on Thursdays. Lectures are supplemented with assigned readings. Thursday discussions draw from all information presented in the lecture and readings for the given week. Participants also submit three short essays over the course of the semester.
