The tips for maintenance and care of plants and trees are also briefed upon. Considers the integration of plants into the design process and emphasizes scale, development density, natural site characteristics, natural plant associations, and individual plant characteristics. Planting design studies in a variety of contexts are included. Use and importance of indigenous landscape elements and their importance as sustainable landscape.

Course Synopsis

The goal of the studio is to continue to understand and use of the foundation principles utilized in the introduction of Landscape Architecture I. The class will continue to explore the possibilities of landscape design that can shape purposefully, productivity and (when our best) provocatively, the built environment. Assignments will concentrate on the aesthetic and practical applications of landscape architecture. Students will work to refine their design process and graphic skills through a series of projects at a variety of scales and project program complexity. The selected projects will address site and road planning, accessibility, sustainable development, principles of vehicular and pedestrian circulation issues as well as basic landform manipulation. The course is composed of Lectures, Presentations and Field surveys. Lecture topics will introduce theories and methods relating to the assigned design projects with an emphasis placed on the research and the practice of Landscape Architecture. Students will research topical issues as they relate to varying scales. Projects and associated assignments are intended to engage students in an investigation of graphic language and representation, form, spatial and material articulation and the communication of design intent through sketching, model making and drawing techniques.

Course Learning Outcomes

As a two credit hour course, Landscape Design II introduces the fundamental skills, concepts and approaches essential to understanding and engaging with contemporary landscape architecture. The course learning objectives are specifically aligned with the thematic content of the lecture series, the self-directed study (including required readings and preparation for studio exercises), the studio exercises and the objectives of the assessable tasks. After completing the Landscape Design course, students will be able to: • Interpret the visual elements used during the landscape design process. This includes drawings and graphics tools. Apply this knowledge to the development of personal design concepts. • Explain how to visualize the landscape site and design space as outdoor rooms. Apply standard design principles. Use these to enhance the appearance of residential and commercial outdoor space. • Apply mathematical and computer-based solutions to both the design and business-related functions of the landscaping design process. • Identify various, plants, flowers, surface materials, and enclosures used to create and enhance exterior design spaces and describe the many applications and configurations used for these materials. • Identify and define essential business concepts utilized by landscaping professionals to operate successful businesses, such as the generation and interpretation of contracts and specifications, human resource management and safety. • Describe the various aspects of the irrigation, winterizing, and general maintenance required for established landscapes. The knowledge and skills acquired in this course provide a fundamental basis for students understanding of landscape sites. This knowledge and the related skills constitute a seminal part of landscape design education in the Bachelor of Architectural Design. The skills acquired are the foundation stones of future career as a designer.
