Course Description: ​​​​​​​This course surveys the evolving socio-ecological conditions resulting from urbanization, climate dynamics, evolving economies and technological innovation. Landscape architects around the world increasingly engage these complexities in the built environment to create new possibilities for the economic, social, and environmental performance of landscapes in public, private, and infrastructural territories. Students will use contemporary projects as a basis for understanding multi-scalar design approaches, technical details, and maintenance regimes. Emphasis will be placed on built landscapes and living systems as integral parts of more dynamic, resilient, and sustainable approaches to landscape design, implementation, and management across scales from the site to the watershed.
