The goal of this course is to introduce students to the basic principles of landscape design in order to build a fundamental knowledge of, and fluency in, the issues and language of landscape design and its application. The coursework is based on a progression of basic design principles that build to an increasingly sophisticated understanding of design and its application, with a strong emphasis on the interrelatedness of architectural built form and landscape built form. Throughout the course, verbal and graphic communication of ideas and solutions are emphasized. Individual design projects are developed under faculty supervision and are then presented to a jury of faculty and distinguished practitioners. Additionally, students receive an overview of landscape architectural history and are exposed to the work of practitioners in the field.
