MLA Year One: LA Theory and Practice


LA Year One is a seminar and workshop course that introduces students to the study and practice of Landscape Architecture. Elements of the profession, including design thinking and making, charrette sketch problems, visiting public art, phases of a project, and team consultants, will be explored to introduce students to the rich visual, spatial, and technical language of the discipline. The class will focus on several writing exercises, including composing a resume, writing critically in response to lectures, on visual and graphic explorations through sketch problems and site specific projects, and on in-class discussions that will facilitate and develop the students’ theoretical and design repertoire within the realm of Landscape Architecture. This course is intended to be taken in conjunction with Public Art and LA Sketch Problem, but is not limited to this sequence.
