“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

This course is for graduate and senior students in both the Planning and Architecture Departments.  We will explore the inter-relationship between Architectural Design, Site Design and Landscape Architecture in a multi-disciplinary way as they influence the planning and design of physical sites in urban contexts.  In practice, architects and planners work as a team on projects. 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.
