ARCH 5822 - History of American Landscape Architecture


     
Spring (not offered every year). 3 credits. Student option grading.

Prerequisite: ARCH 5801  and ARCH 5802  or permission of instructor.

L. Mirin.

Landscape architecture in the United States from Jefferson to the present is examined as a unique expression of the American experience. Influences exerted by the physical landscape, the frontier and utopian spirit, and the cultural assumptions of democracy and capitalism are traced as they affect the forms of urban parks, private and corporate estates, public housing, transportation planning, national parks, and other open-space designs.
