In this manner, those spaces by which the landscape is defined – such as infrastructure systems, urban watersheds, industrial sites, suburban communities, and city fabric – become the laboratories for the program’s educational focus.
The curriculum places an emphasis on design of the built environment including its social dimension, sensory experience, and ecological systems. Working in conjunction with allied design disciplines represented within the school – including Architecture, Urban Design, Community and Regional Planning, and the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center – the professional curriculum emphasizes interdisciplinary endeavors that serve the needs of the community, the state, and the society at large.
The program’s pedagogy thereby situates design as a process of inquiry, whereby the coordinated design curriculum introduces a set of representation, spatial, theoretical, and material practices by which to integrate the landscape’s structure, function, and change over time.
Working from measure to agency, data to decision, the pedagogy positions design as a synthetic endeavor that evolves as much from context and speculation as it does from questions of technique, beauty, and delight.
Research and work advanced by the program’s students and faculty reflect the above aims. From urban streams to urban forests, parks to cemeteries, streetscapes to city blocks, historic landscapes to military training grounds, the endeavors seek to integrate aesthetics (what a landscape looks like) with performance (what a landscape does). - See more at:
