Landscape Architecture Degree Project II


LA 502 - LA Degree Project Studio 2, is the capstone of the BAC's educational program for Bachelor of Landscape Architecture students. LA 502 is the second semester of a two-semester course, with the same instructor for both semesters. It meets for nine contact hours each week for Fall and Spring or Spring and Fall, depending on when the student initially enters the Degree Project Studio. AS 510 Landscape and the Imagination is preparatory semester or project proposal for this course. Successful completion of the Degree Project Studio, together with all other BLA degree requirements, will result in conferral of the school's Bachelor of Landscape Architecture degree. The course is informed by the fundamental values of leadership, authorship and ownership. These values help shape the course syllabus and structure in ways that will impact the student's experience and learning. This course seeks as well to address joining the goals of general education with those of professional education, actively situating landscape architecture within cultural contexts beyond the formal limits of the discipline. In achieving these objectives the Degree Project joins modes of learning, working and thinking associated with academic work and work in practice. This is also an integrative project, in the sense that the student is required to synthesize technical perspectives within the design process. This includes incorporation of landscape technology, construction and plant systems as part of the creative work of the studio. Collaborative work will be a feature of the Degree Project Studio design process. Meetings will include discussions, writing, critiques, presentations and in-class work on design. The Landscape Architecture Faculty will participate in the evaluation of students' projects.
