LAR-631 Dynamic Systems, Plant Ecol. and People
9:30 am – 12:20 pm
Higgins Hall South, 008
The Landscape Workshop sequence comprises four compendium courses, undertaking a comprehensive, interdisciplinary study of ecosystems, their interrelated human communities, and the role of design in improving the health and performance of those ecosystems. Workshop 1 examines in detail ecology in an urban context, framed by the non-equilibrium paradigm that posits that open, dynamic systems constantly adapt to change / disturbance, and that situates humans as an integral part of the “natural” world.
