Contemporary Landscape as Art:Earth, Wind, Stone


Modern site-specific installations and landscape art are a rich resource for the contemporary designer, highlighting environmental and social issues. This seminar explores the evolution of the modern landscape from the mid-20th century to the contemporary scene. Students will analyze the materials, function and execution of works by seminal designers such as Isamu Noguchi, James Rose, Dan Kiley, Luis Barragán, Andy Goldsworthy, Piet Oudolf, Martha Schwartz and Ken Smith. A three-day field trip to New York City in March will allow a firsthand view of major works of public space that both inform and transform the site and visitor. Students are responsible for their own transportation and travel accommodations.
