A48 LAND 524HRethinking Design Standards: Materials, Details, and Maintenance3.0 Units
Description:How does the design process account for the temporal nature of constructed landscapes? How should landscape architects practice with the future of their project sites and designs in mind? With the increasingly urgent need to minimize carbon emissions and extraction processes, landscape architects must reevaluate standard practice to consider how their designs are weathering and engaging with local environments over time. Key to this review are material selection, detail design, and maintenance processes, all of which determine a project's sustainability five, 10, or 50 years from when it is originally constructed. In this course, students will be pushed to question the current standards of landscape practice to design for the current moment in climate change and environmental justice. Through lectures, readings and research, students will first gain an understanding of what these standards are and their ultimate weathering processes to then develop their own design proposals and modifications to these standards. Ultimately, design standards become the design project. The course is exploratory and experimental in nature, so students are encouraged to bring their own questions of the profession and research ideas. Master of Landscape Architecture students and Landscape Architecture minors have priority. Students will be registered for the course from the waitlist by the Registrar's Office.

A course may be either a “Home” course or an “Ident” course.

A “Home” course is a course that is created, maintained and “owned” by one academic department (aka the “Home” department). The “Home” department is primarily responsible for the decision making and logistical support for the course and instructor.

An “Ident” course is the exact same course as the “Home” (i.e. same instructor, same class time, etc), but is simply being offered to students through another department for purposes of registering under a different department and course number.

Students should, whenever possible, register for their courses under the department number toward which they intend to count the course. For example, an AFAS major should register for the course "Africa: Peoples and Cultures" under its Ident number, L90 306B, whereas an Anthropology major should register for the same course under its Home number, L48 306B.
