About this course
This studio focuses on historic and contemporary urbanism as understood and addressed through landscape architecture. By using the City as an “urban landscape laboratory,” the studio investigates the influential context of political, economic, social, and geophysical forces in order to propose regenerative and interpretive frameworks for the City through landscape systems and strategies. Issues and topics for examination may include changing demographics, social and environmental inequality, post-industrial land, soil toxicity, water systems and urban flooding, fragmented habitat, and climate change, as well as their intersections.
