Affords students opportunities to participate in specific faculty's advance research projects.
LAR 6010: Foundation Studio I
Credits: 6
Series of short analytical and conceptual design projects with special emphasis on the landscape medium, on site readings, and site-specific design approaches. Prerequisite: ALAR 5010 & 5020
LAR 6020: Foundation Studio II
Credits: 6
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.
LAR 7210: EcoTech III
Credits: 4
Advanced level of ground manipulation + water integrated with ecological principles and engineering applications in the area of urban watershed management.
