LST 340 - The Meanings of Landscapes

From Zen temple gardens to Versailles to the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, the way we design our external environments has revealed who we are as societies and nations. Changing ideals of landscape and building design from one tradition to another, from one period to another, form part of the history of ideas. But workaday landscapes, too, (our hometowns, malls, college campuses, office towers, highways and big box stores) have cultural meanings and the course encourages students to study closely this more familiar world as well. Satisfies the Arts and Humanities core requirement.
