Graduate School-New Brunswick
16:550:531 Studio: Fundamentals of Landscape Design (5) Foundational design issues in landscape architecture, including space, form, meaning, context, and media. Principles of landscape composition, theories of landscape spatial design, and examples of recent work. Application of design principles to the design of small-scale public open spaces such as parks or plazas.
16:550:532 Studio: Urban/Suburban Design (5) Landscape design applied to the design/rehabilitation of the urban/suburban landscape. Emphasis on social theory and practice, the role of policy and regulation, and the nature of urban/suburban ecology in making specific design proposals for multipurpose land uses.
16:550:533 Studio: Ecological Landscape Architecture (5) Ecological principles critical to landscape design; applications of ecological insight to design.
16:550:534 Studio: Regional Design (5) Spatial analysis through GIS; visual representation techniques; projections and forecasts; alternative land-use scenario construction; evaluation of land-use impacts at multiple scales.
16:550:535 Studio: Housing and Open Space Studio (5) Design of the landscapes in which we reside across multiple scales of community; the private garden, social gathering spaces, and the neighborhood. Applications include residential site design and community layout.
16:550:536 Special Topics Studio (5) Individual work on a self-selected project supervised by members of the faculty.
16:550:538 (S) Studio: Master's Project (6) Independent, scholarly work on contemporary professional environmental design problems, resulting in proposals to change policy, regulation, and/or physical form.
16:550:541 Representation I: Hand Graphics (2) Presentation and communication techniques applicable to landscape architecture, including visualization skills and hand drawing. Subjects include freehand sketching; plan, section, and orthogonal representation; diagramming and analysis mapping.
16:550:542 Representation II: Digital Media and Design Communication (2) An introduction to digital representation, visual simulation, principles of graphic design, fundamentals of design communication, and methods for constructing three-dimensional digital models.
16:550:545 Introduction to Geomatics (3) New technologies to make better use of geospatial data for environmental and natural resource analysis and management. Basic concepts, definitions, and examples of different applications used in an environmental planning and management context.
16:550:548 Plants in the Landscape (2) Selection and use of plants to build soil processes, design for biodiversity, combat problems with storm water management, and minimize issues with invasive species.
16:550:549 Landscape Plants II: Identification and Design (2) Identification, environmental requirements, and landscape assets and liabilities of ornamental plants with focus on broadleaf and narrow-leaf evergreens and the spring aspects of deciduous trees and shrubs.
16:550:551 Landscape History I: Antiquity-1850 (3) Historical analysis of the evolution of structures, settlements, and landscapes from antiquity to the modern world.
16:550:552 Landscape History II: 1850-Present (3) Historical analysis of landscape architecture theory and practice since 1850, beginning with Frederick Law Olmsted and including modernist and contemporary works. Topics covered include the works of Olmsted, Rose, Kiley, Eckbo, Halprin, McHaarg, Schwartz, Walker, and others.
16:550:553 Theories of Landscape Architecture (3) Major ideas and thinking behind the formation of designed landscapes. Topics include conceptions of nature, aesthetics, the garden, space, landscape perception, public landscapes, sustainability, and ecological and regenerative design.
16:550:555 Land Planning Theories and Practice (3) Analysis, interpretation, and proposals for solutions to regional-scale landscape planning problems, with emphasis on methodologies such as GIS, suitability mapping, and visual resource management as applied to land planning, design, and management problems.
16:550:572 Colloquium in Landscape Architecture (3) A forum for discussing thesis and terminal project presentations as well as scholarly and creative activity of faculty members and regional professionals.
16:550:582 Research Methods for Landscape Architecture (2) Introduction to traditions of scholarship, research approaches, and theories. How different methods are applied to a variety of research topics.
16:550:701 (F) Research in Landscape Architecture (BA)
