LA — Housing and Urban Design Spring Semester 4 credits An application of landscape design principles and problem-solving methods to housing and urban issues with attention to physical site design, land-use controls, and the relationship between housing and associated land uses.

The built environment is continuously changing through multiple land development-and redevelopment-decisions. Public policies on housing, transportation, mortgage financing, and taxation, in conjunction with changing demographics and lifestyle preferences, are just some of the factors that influence the evolving structure and function of the built environment.

Landscape architects can play important roles—through design, civic engagement, and policy advocacy—in making our cities and suburbs healthier and more sustainable. Spring Semester 3 credits Urban open space systems are deceptively complex, with public and semi-public open spaces varying in size, shape, design, and context.

This course examines the structure and function of urban open space systems from both theoretical and planning practice perspectives. The redevelopment or retrofitting of parks and open spaces can help cities become healthier and more attractive, equitable, and sustainable places to live, learn, work, and play. Spring Semester 3 credits Site planning is a multi-phased process of site selection, project programming, site inventory and analysis, conceptual design, design development, and construction documentation and administration.
