The mission of landscape architecture is supported by research and theory in many fields. Landscape Journal offers in-depth exploration of ideas and challenges that are central to contemporary design, planning, and teaching. Besides scholarly features, Landscape Journal also includes editorial columns, creative work, reviews of books, conferences, technology, and exhibitionsLandscape Journal digs deeper into the field by providing articles from: landscape architects geographers architects planners artists historians ecologists poets
Students learn about ecological processes, plants, construction and maintenance methods, graphic communication and plan making for construction documents and landscape history. In a series of four design studios students apply their learning and develop their ability to shape natural, built and cultural places. Courses enable students to understand problems and design solutions that meet high standards for function, sustainability, aesthetic value and meaning.
Impress your clients with detailed 2D and 3D landscape designs using Realtime Landscaping Architect. Design complete landscapes including yards, gardens, swimming pools, ponds, decks, fences, patios, and much more.Design professional landscape plansCreate effective presentations and videosPowerful, yet easy to use design tools17,000 objects, including 7,400 plantsDesign Landscape PlansDesign houses, decks, fencing, yards, gardens, swimming pools, water features, and much more with easy-to-use tools.
Design irrigation systems, planting details, and other CAD drawings with accurate size and scale. Includes drawing templates for sheet sizes A0-A4, and custom sizes are also supported. An extensive library of symbols is included, and you can create your own using the wizard.Simultaneous 2D and 3D DesignAs you design your landscape, the 2D and 3D views are updated automatically. Freely switch between views as needed. Design houses, decks, and other objects in 2D, and then switch to 3D to set their elevation. Most tools can be used in either view.
The 2D view, called the Plan view, is used for creating artistic, stylized, CAD-like, or realistic top-down landscape plans. If an object is added to the Plan view it will appear in both the Plan and 3D views, but can be customized for each view if needed. This functionality allows landscape designers to create both detailed 2D plans and realistic 3D designs at the same time.Choose your Design AppearanceMany different design types of plan designs are available in Realtime Landscaping Architect through large libraries of symbols, color washes, hatch patterns, gradients, and more. Create rich vibrant designs, or opt for a traditional black and white CAD appearance. Through the use of color washes, even hand-drawn or painted designs are possible.High Quality PlantsDesign landscapes using a library of over 7,400 high resolution plants including shrubs, annuals, perennials, cacti, water garden and tropical.

The practice of landscape architecture ranges across the geographic spectrum from urban to suburban, rural and ecosystems. Landscape architects appropriately use systems thinking in the planning and design of systems, and design thinking at many scales, including of course to make spaces and places people inhabit outside. Planning and analysis projects for systems include habitat and conservation, watersheds, and infrastructure such as food and agriculture, energy, and transportation. Design thinking enables landscape architects to create parks, plazas, greenways, community gardens, green alleyways, green roofs and walls, and innovative and natural stormwater treatment in urban sites and places.
Sustainable and resilient landscapes for residential areas are also a part of practice, ranging from high-density urban housing to rural landscapes. Cultural landscapes and historic, designed sites are also in the domain of landscape architectural practice. These represent an important body of work for practitioners. From the broad list above, opportunities are legion to use planning, design and design thinking to make better places for all.
The Bachelor of Science in Landscape Architectural Studies serves students who are interested in the design disciplines, but not professional practice. This four-year program suits students who seek careers in allied planning and design disciplines, including urban and regional planning, historic preservation, environmental law, and architectural history. This degree is an excellent platform for students looking forward to graduate education in professions such as architecture, landscape architecture, geography, and urban and regional planning.
The Department of Landscape Architecture offers and oversees a minor in Design With Plantss for students interested in significant world issues in landscape design, climate change, management, and sustainability. The Design with Plants Minor combines plant-centered coursework with several design-oriented courses within the Landscape Architecture Department. This minor is tailored for those students desiring a more in-depth study of plants, plant communities, soils, aesthetic and architectural uses of plants, and design and deployment strategies related to them. 2b1af7f3a8
