Campus Drive, one of the main arterials in the College Park campus of the University of Maryland, will be used as a case study. Reincarnating California City California City is a superlative shrinking suburb.
Thus, the thesis explores the use of video media and virtual reality to present an immersive experience of the architecture. Both a science and an art, landscape architecture involves creative decision-making based on scientific knowledge of natural processes coupled with awareness of historical, cultural, and social dynamics.
These spaces are defined by their enclosure yet this barrier is not entirely impenetrable.
Strategies for Connections in Post-industrial Buffalo This thesis sets out to connect two isolated neighborhoods within the post-industrial city of Buffalo, NY.
It is time that we leverage the technology that gives us so much insight into the science of sound, and start designing architectural experiences Landscape architecture thesis proposals can communicate visually what we understand sonically. The stuff of the suburb is examined in depth as the psyche of California City and given architectural agency as the means by which the town is destroyed, reconstituted and rebirthed anew.
Town Hall for the New Interior The thesis examines the formal figuration of public space for a new agonistic public sphere within the contemporary condition of the late capitalist city where the space of massive interiors is a given.
Critical of the innocence of so-called public space and the underlying architectural impasse, the thesis offers an investigative commentary on the state of urban enclaves, while speculating on alternative strategies by designing an embassy, a bounded pseudo-extraterritory and the epitome of an enclave.
An Inquiry into Non-Equilibrium Architectural States This project asks how destructive forces can be used for constructive purposes. In a silent crisis where sustained inscription of physical and social boundaries evacuate urban space into archipelagos of enclaves, Architecture with only ambiguous claims of public space is rendered both accomplice and victim, impotent against forces of capital and concerns of security.
Introduction to computer aided design applications and the underlying theories of application. Field trips are required. Roadway segments typologies will be identified and classified. The thesis is a way of saying that we as a culture at least contended with fracking and its innumerable consequences in way that was more substantial than simply worrying about the price of gas at the pump.
What becomes of the corpse? Despite the various opinions on the future campus, the value of physical social interaction remains the primary method of incubating ideas. Thus memorial architecture tends to miss opportunities for deeper exploration and individualized experiences beyond simplistic representations of memorialized events or figures.
The course addresses a series of broad themes essential to developing a cogent thesis proposal. Program flexibility allows each student to emphasize such topics as ecological restoration and design, sustainable cities and land systems, social justice, landscape aesthetics, natural resource analysis and planning, land conservation and development, urban design, restoration of waterways, renewal of agricultural lands, private and public agency professional practice, environmental impact assessment, landscape history and preservation, and environmental design research methods.LA Thesis Research/ Thesis in Landscape Architecture: hours.
Hours and credit to be arranged LA Landscape Architecture Graduate Studio I: 2 hours. Thesis and Dissertation Research is a strategic bibliographic guide for architecture, city planning, urban design, and landscape architecture graduate students beginning their professional report, thesis, or dissertation work.
The guide will be especially helpful to students starting a literature review. These multifunctional landscapes can be used as design solutions for challenges posed by urban development.
This thesis explores the roles that landscape architecture and urban agriculture can play in improving food environments for schools, families, and communities located in urban food deserts.
This thesis investigates how new natures can be constructed within the myth of the pastoral, through a study of this Dutch lowland landscape and a design proposal that encompasses the landscape and the architectural scales. Thesis assignment is given in almost all departments of a school or college.
An architectural thesis is one of them which require the student to question about architecture and define concepts like a theme, site and a program.
