The primary goal of this course is to introduce the student of architecture to landscape architecture, site engineering, and design. The course is divided into two seven-week segments. The site engineering segment introduces and develops an understanding of site grading skills, the reasons for grading, the effect of grades on water drainage, and the use of storm drainage systems. The site planning segment introduces and develops an understanding of design synthesis by focusing on the constraints and opportunities provided by the landscape, as related to the shaping of architecture. Lectures and studio assignments emphasize the relationship between landscape architecture and architecture for the positive development of site and structure. (3-4 credit hours)
