Topical offerings in landscape architecture.
Advanced independent research on topics selected by individual students in consultation with a faculty advisor Prerequisite: permission of instructor.
LAR 6020 focuses on process and from, exploring how dynamic living systems shape the landscape with design interventions resulting in complex places within specific contexts. Design methodologies are introduced as a means to translate landscape processes and to respond through iterative design propositions. Prerequisite: LAR 6010.
The Design Computation sequence introduces computational thinking and design in the context of long-standing architectural technologies. Design Computation 2 focuses on cartography, the visual display of information, and spatial data analytics.
LAR 7020 is grounded in issues of urban design. Fundamental aspects of urban form are explored in contemporary contexts of cities impacted by urgent environmental, economic and social circumstances. Design propositions are generated at the scale of landscape infrastructure to that of individual citizens. Prerequisite: of ALAR 7010
Advanced level of ground manipulation + water integrated with ecological principles and engineering applications in the area of urban watershed management. Topics include urban hydrology & soils, storm water management & low impact development techniques, as well as constructed wetlands & stream restoration. Prerequisite:Must be enrolled in ALAR 7010 Studio or taken LAR 6211, or with permission of instructor.
This course introduces various technologies, primarily web-based, that enable designers to promote civic engagement through the analysis and activation of public space. Course format is interactive and interdisciplinary, combining hands-on tutorials (Mapbox, HTML, CSS, dataviz, social media APIs.) with contemporary case studies in placemaking, activism, and civic tech. No prior coding knowledge required.
Course explores ways of representing, analyzing and designing the landscape through a variety of 2D and 3D media. Through a series of lectures, exercises, fieldwork, case studies, reading discussions and workshops, students will be introduced to a diverse body of representational models and methods to address form, scale, materiality, context and time unique to the praxis of landscape architecture
