Considering the Campus: Landscape Architecture, Tradition, and the Ecological Mandate
ARST 441
Spring 2012
Section: 01  
Crosslisting: ENVS 441

As a medium, landscape architecture has the ability to express ideas about the relationship between humans and the natural world. Campuses with their traditional landscapes and landscape maintenance regimes face new mandates for ecological performance and expression. This course seeks to use a combination of readings and design exercises to test ideas of nature and community and to explore how the basic components of the landscape--topography, hydrology, and vegetation--impact campus design.
