LAR-752 Professional Practice I: In Situ

3 Credits

The Professional Practice sequence comprises two courses, encompassing a comprehensive understanding of professional practice, and its relationship to the role of a landscape architect to realize design thinking through the phases of construction documentation and construction implementation. Professional Practice I: In the Field explores some of the applied facets of professional practice including performance evaluation, Urban ecosystems, grading, and remediation. This course uniquely engages students in context, using the City of New York to examine the design process forensically, following challenges and oversights in moving from construction details to material selection to actual constructability and the challenges of maintenance.
