Landscape Design 3

Advanced Site Design

This course introduces the student to the landscape architectural design process, emphasizing site inventory, analysis, program, design process, and concept development. Projects are mid- to large-scale sites you can actually visit, such as civic plazas, freeway capping projects, downtown urban development, etc. The design program for each project are defined by the instructor. Presentation graphics are both handdrawn and/or physically built. Students also use computer modeling, rendering, 3D modeling, InDesign, SketchUp and Photoshop. Final presentation projects utilize hand graphics with blended use of CAD and 3D modeling as background support only.
