This course will introduce students to innovative materials and technologies in landscape architecture. The study of landscape materiality will take place in two major forms: through a survey of contemporary material technologies, and through direct experimentation with the materials. The range of materials and technologies will be broad, ranging in subjects from upcycling, to smart materials, those with the potential to transform energy found in the environment into usable forms (i.e. electricity). The goal of the course is to generate prototypes and ideas that foster design innovation in landscape architecture.
