KurzbeschreibungThis course will be an introduction to essential aspects of designing with living systems. The lectures will cover a curated list of constructed landscapes that embody a high level of complexity in their composition, systems, and evolution.
LernzielIn class and through additional drawing exercises, the students will explore the components of the sites in great detail: their plant communities, infrastructure, management regimes, climatic and geologic contexts, and the larger systems and territories in which they are embedded.

Through this course architecture students will be introduced to meaningful landscape projects, and will learn a methodology for understanding the field of landscape architecture and its potential in relationship to the dynamic performance of living things. Through this knowledge, they will be able to work with landscape architects as collaborators and colleagues.
InhaltIn the lectures, the students will learn about a selection of significant built landscapes that span a range of sizes, ages, and places of origin. The projects will be taught through an analytical framework that prioritizes key landscape elements that are often overlooked in traditional representations of projects. The students will contribute to the course by translating this complexity through a drawing exercise. Altogether, the work of the studio will be a critical and comparative study of significant landscape architecture projects, past and present.
SkriptCourse material will be provided.
LiteraturThe course material includes a reading list.
