“Site Planning is the art of arraigning structures on the land and shaping spaces between, an art linked to architecture, engineering, landscape architecture and city planning.” …Kevin Lynch, Site Planning

This course in newly created and is focused on graduate and senior students in both the Planning and Architecture departments. We will cover the inter-relationship Architectural Design, Site Planning and Landscape Architecture in a multidisciplinary way as they influence the planning and design of physical sites. In practice, architects and planners work as a team on projects. Therefore, it is of critical importance that the dialogue between architects and planners be supported and understood. This course will provide opportunities to explore that relationship, as we understand the opportunities in site planning and design.
