LAR-632 Ecotones, Working With Water, Topography

4 Credits

Landscape Workshop 2 focuses on coastal ecologies, and the landscape and design responses to climate crisis through resilience, adaptation,and associated methods of mitigation. The course explores an exemplar site of the outer Atlantic Coastal Plain around the New York Bight, highlighting the diversity of regional plant communities and hydrologic conditions. Through research and analysis of the interconnections between the underlying geology, topography, hydrology, soils, vegetation, wildlife, and human interventions, including small scale case studies in grading, plant science and hydrology, the course reveals patterns reflecting process and demonstrates a range of techniques and technologies of intervention.
