Several students recently completed spring study tours through coursework at the SDC.
Students in Landscape Architecture 333 spent time in Portland, Oregon learning about the designed landscapes of Portland through direct, immersive experiences. The key theme of the study tour this year was “Public Space~Water~Infrastructure.”
Students in SDC 555 participated in a week-long study tour in the Netherlands as part of their Global Design and Construction course. An exhibit, to be held May 1-8, will showcase primary work in the course focused on researching how broader themes of geography, government support, culture, history, and individual talent influence design culture. Research will compare the United States (specifically Pullman, Moscow, and Seattle) with locations visited in the Netherlands.
Students in Landscape Architecture 363, a third year studio focused on professional site design processes with a concentration on recreation facilities and site planning within residential, urban, institutional, and regional projects, spent time exploring the great Hells Canyon Dam area with faculty David Drake and Chris Masicampo.
