New! History of Landscape Architecture – Remote with In-Person Field Trip
Adults: Ages 18+
This course will explore the complex relationship between culture and nature through a historic survey of humans’ intentional manipulation of the landscape. The class lectures will follow a roughly chronological structure tracing the evolution of landscape design from the public open spaces of ancient cities, private gardens of the Renaissance, through the large parks of the City Beautiful Movements. A significant segment of the syllabus will focus on human responses to the industrialized and post-industrial urban environments. The cultural knowledge and analytical tools gained through the course will provide a solid foundation for future academic endeavors in design disciplines and enrich students’ real-world experience of the natural and the built environments. These class sessions will be over 14 weeks for a total of 28 hours and will be taught online using Zoom via Blackboard platform. Instructor-Susan Jainchill.
