Small, focused, introductory-level course in discussion, workshop and/or design-based format on topics related to current research in architecture.

The objective of this course is to provide architecture students with a general introduction to landscape architecture through a survey of specific themes and corresponding projects in the history of the discipline. From the gardens of Versailles to the High Line in New York City, the practice of landscape architecture is an inherently Modern endeavor that has emerged with a complex and evolving set of rules, traditions, and practices. This course will allow the student to explore and understand this field so as to better integrate the buildings she/he designs with the fabric of the space in-between.

The course shall be comprised of lectures, workshops, field trips and discussion sessions. The instructors will assign a reading (or set of readings) related to the topic of each week. Class workshops and discussion sessions will be based on a close reading of the text vis-à-vis projects and themes discussed in class, with the aim of preparing the student for the final assignment. Students are expected to participate actively in and contribute positively to the workshop discussion.
