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 second course in this sequence, LAR 584: Histories and Theories II, shifts to the history of landscape and urban development in the West with an emphasis on the United States, and is focused on the dramati transformations that have taken place in the environment and the profession since pre-colonization through industrialization to the present.
