LIN4006 - Design II: Designing Sustainably
Designing for energy efficiency, conservation of soil, bedrock and hydrology, and sustainable practices are the goals of this class. Green roofs, passive and active solar technologies using plants for heating and cooling are some of the subjects that will be introduced in this class. Field trips to specific sites for extensive site analysis will include reading the land, understanding hydrology, geology, and plant communities. The challenges of global warming, exotic invasives and the impact on wildlife will be considered in the design program. Progressive landscape design models that embrace understanding integrated green concepts will be researched. Design theory, especially the use of mass and void, verticals and horizontals, and hidden and revealed views, will be covered. The student's ability to apply these design elements and site analysis skills including environmental considerations will be the criteria for evaluating the assigned projects.
