A48 LAND 565Landscape Technology3.0 Units
Description:Throughout the world of spatial design, there has been a strong resurgence of interest in landscape methods as a comprehensive and innovative approach towards defining and engineering sites. Techniques of working the land engage dynamic processes, molding conditions and creating forms in order to control erosion, conserve water, and minimize human impacts. As such, landscape methods have created new standards of performance for sites of all sizes and circumstances. Accordingly, this course, intended for students across disciplines, presents an integrated approach to site planning through the intensive study of applied landscape systems. The material covers the spatial and functional systems of designed landscapes and their associated computational and technical aspects: micro- and macrograding, path alignment, and drainage calculation. Through studying these techniques, students will learn to implement and quantify water management, microclimate manipulation, and low-impact circulation, parking, and servicing. The principles and methods are presented through short lectures and supported by case studies, class workshops and design exercises, tying theory to practical applications. 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.
