Landscape Design History
Study theories and principles that have shaped the design of landscapes from antiquity to the present. Explore Eastern and Western garden traditions. Survey all types of gardens and landscapes, including corporate and public spaces, through visual presentations, assigned readings, projects, and classroom discussion. Landscape designs will be considered in the context of the times and societies in which they were created.
Please note that the final essay for this class emphasizes research and writing skills, and that English proficiency is required.
