Course Description: ​​​​​​​The Histories and Theories I and II course sequence is intended to cultivate an awareness of how humans have transformed, curated, consumed, and projected meaning onto the landscape, with a critical examination of the places and people that have informed landscape architecture as a profession. The first course in this sequence, LAR 581: Histories and Theories I, lays the groundwork for a cross-cultural history of human engagement with landscape, and introduces the foundations from which the field of landscape architecture as a modern profession later developed.
