The Landscape Architecture + Urban Design program at The Design School aims to teach students to make the world more sustainable, healthy and beautiful.
Landscape architecture employs knowledge from the arts and sciences to explore reasons for and the techniques involved in shaping the outdoor environment. Large-scale work includes such areas of interest as urban design and landscape ecological design, while medium and smaller-scale work is undertaken in site planning, residential design, park and recreation design, and landscape reclamation. In this diverse and changing profession, new and emerging foci include biotechnical construction, landscape interpretation, and the design of restorative environments, green roofs, and living walls.
The Master of Urban Design (MUD) is a multidisciplinary program in the Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts. The curriculum draws from the disciplines of architecture, landscape architecture, law, civil engineering, planning, public programs, real estate development, and the first School of Sustainability in the United States.
