Special Topics- Sustainable Site Design

This course will take design skills gained in STOCKSCH 397S (Sustainable Site Design & Planning) to the next level.  The previous course provided an exploration into the fundamentals of landscape design with particular attention to integrating both existing and new buildings sustainably into their landscapes and culminated in a final design project. In this course students will deepen their design skills by expanding upon their previous final design projects or focusing on new design projects.  Students will prepare a draft and final set of landscape design plans for a project or site of their choosing.  In the process, students will become aware of common manual and computer-aided graphic techniques including computer programs that can be applied to design work (e.g. AutoCAD, InDesign, Photoshop, etc.). However, students are not expected to have graphic background. Part of the Online Certificate in Sustainable Food and Farming and the Sustainable Food and Farming Associate's Degree.
