ARCH-591A Elements of Landscape Architecture

3 Credits

This course introduces the elements, which comprise the design palette of landscape architecture. The use of plant materials is explored by examining plant forms, general and specific characteristics and physical requirements. Examples of planting design include: roof tops, urban sites, public places, interiors and residential projects. Other elements of landscape are illustrated to reveal the kinesthetic experience, including water as ornament, the ground plane, lighting, seating, follies and other structures. For all elements, both aesthetic and construction considerations will be highlighted.
