Sustainability and Resilience

Sustainability and resilience are key themes that carry throughout all courses in the Landscape Architecture curriculum. These ideas have been at the center of critical and growing debates about how our world is changing. Urbanization, climate change, environmental degradation, social and environmental justice are all areas of discourse that engage ideas of sustainability and resilience, and are key factors that students address when they take on research, planning and design projects.

Specific courses that emphasize sustainability and/or resilience include:

  • LARC 151 Introduction to the Built Environment
  • LARC 380 Water Conservation Technologies
  • LARC 453-55 Landscape Architecture Studio 5 and 6
  • LARC 463-65 Landscape Architecture Studio 7 and 8
  • LARC 480 The Resilient Landscape
  • LARC 481 Urban Systems in Ecology
  • LARC 554 Graduate Studio 1 and Regional and Community Design Studio (Boise)
