LANDSCAPE ON STRUCTURE

 Program Washington University in Saint Louis, Knowlton School

This course examines the materials, technologies and design approaches for landscapes on structure–green roofs and vertical gardens, among others. Through a series of case studies and site visits, students will gain an understanding of the relationships between structure (architecture and infrastructure) and substrate, soil, water, and plants. Topics include innovative planting and urban streetscape systems, and infrastructural adaptation and re-use. Exercises range from analytical diagrams of construction methods, study models of precedent project, and design concepts for living systems adapted to a variety of structural and environmental conditions.

This course includes guest lectures, field trips and workshops.
