Landscape Architecture Degree Project I


Degree Project Studio I is the first part of the comprehensive capstone, and the penultimate of the Bachelor of Landscape Architecture design studio series. The course is guided by the fundamental values of leadership, authorship and ownership that have been learned and experienced through individual and collaborative design explorations to this point. This course merges the goals of general education with those of professional education, actively situating landscape architecture within cultural contexts beyond the formal limits of the discipline. In achieving these objectives the Degree Studio Project I joins modes of learning, working, and thinking associated with academic work and work in practice. Students are required to synthesize the various influences within the design process, and include elements of landscape ecology, sustainability and plant systems, design media, technology and construction means and methods, and professional practice, as well as ideas from the arts, sciences and humanities that further support these explorations through spatial design proposals as demonstrated visually, orally and in writing.
