T Th 7:15-8:30pm, Anderson Hall, room 148
 
Small, focused, introductory-level course in discussion, workshop and/or design-based format on topics related to current research in architecture.
 
This course provides an introduction to landscape architecture through a survey of its history and through direct application to a studio project. From the historic gardens at Versailles to the current Millennium Park in Chicago, the direct manipulation and design of land has a long and complex set of rules, traditions, and practices. The focus will be on the consideration of how architecture extends beyond the interior and its relationship to an equally important external fabric. The course is comprised of interactive lectures on landscape themes, and the application of specific concepts imparted into design exercises. Non-architecture majors who wish to enroll in this course must receive permission from the instructors at the end of the first week of school. Permission will be granted to students who present a portfolio of satisfactory visual artwork or graphic design. This class is open to sophomores and above.
