Site Assembly intends to establish a solid base of technical knowledge about the physical and performative characteristics of traditional building materials (e.g., vegetative, recycled, composite, sustainable, etc.) related to landscape architecture.  In addition, the course encourages students to become astute observers and skilled recorders at the detail to landscape scales, while obtaining a greater materials sensibility to the design and construction processes that eventually translate into built landscapes.

When Offered Spring.
