Landscape Institute: Construction Materials & Methods


Design intention is expressed by the selection of materials and construction details, and the methods by which they are applied. This studio will survey construction materials, standard details, and design considerations for building on the land. The first half of the course will focus on engineering concerns and aspects of construction documentation, while the second half will apply construction principles to a variety of design elements, such as stonework, steps and ramps, fencing, planting details, outdoor lighting, and more. Students will have weekly assignments, readings, and quizzes to supplement the class work.
