LAR-772 Landscape Research I

4 Credits

This course will outline the fundamentals of research in landscape studies, through the lens of design, ecology and history. It places the student experience at the center of the challenge by foregrounding case-studies from current events in the environment from fires to floods, migration to pandemics. Thus, Landscape Research I offers rotating topics depending upon the semester, which reflect the urgency of the times. Students will learn how to move between talking theory and actually putting it to use in research with a particular emphasis on expanding the relationship between archival resources and model making techniques. The course will provide an understanding of research approaches and skills, and invite analysis of different methods and means in the lineage of landscape architectural research, and its influences.
