EARTHSYS 22: Introduction to Landscape Architecture: Urban Ecology and Environmental Design

This 1 unit, nine-week course provides an introduction to landscape architecture, covering a brief history of the field, making connections between science and sustainable and resilient urban ecosystems, and exploring a range of projects and topics that landscape architects touch. From public spaces and streetscapes to shorelines and trails, landscape architecture projects combine art and science in the pursuit of connecting and engaging humans with built and natural environments. The practice can be used to contribute to and achieve complex goals such as climate resilience, environmental restoration, habitat creation, green infrastructure planning, and aesthetic appeal. Through targeted readings, lectures, thoughtful discussions, and foundational assignments encouraging students to get outside and observe their surrounding landscapes, students will receive an introduction to landscape architecture and engage with a creative application of earth systems science. This course begins during Week 2 of fall quarter and will invite practicing landscape architects and urban designers to give biweekly guest lectures. Students of all class years and majors are encouraged to enroll. Guest lectures will be open to the Stanford community.
