LAR-703 Land Studio III: Borough

5 Credits

The third semester core studio introduces students to the complexities of environmental justice in and around theve-Boroughs of New York with particular emphasis on Brooklyn. Structured as a two-part sequence within the second-year curriculum, Land Studio III focuses on community partnerships and land-based practices. Exploring a more accountable design agenda, in part 1 students will understand the cascade of issues related to a changing climate as a means to identify inequality and the disproportionate environmental burdens that can be addressed through the medium of landscape. In part two, students engage directly in issues including but not limited to seed sovereignty, airborne pollution, inadequate food supplies, and unsafe soils as a catalyst to civic dialogue, creative exploration, and co-creation. This studio works closely with LAR 731.
