Conducted in a studio format, this capstone course is designed as a sequence of projects in which students apply and reinforce some of the most fundamental skills required in landscape architecture. Students are challenged and expected to expand their capacity for abstract & analytical thinking as it relates to the relationship of mass and space. A main focus is on translation of 2D compositions into 3D volumes. The projects will vary in scale and context to cover research, abstract and analytical thinking, aesthetic appreciation, drawing, design, and model making. Fieldwork and field trips may be required.
