Robert Reich School of Landscape Architecture


LA 7044 Landscape Technology IV: Construction Documents, Details, Materials, and Design/Building

Putting it all together: this course gives students the opportunity of learning what are the components and graphic systems involved in putting together a set of construction documents (CD’s). Using a document developed by Design Workshop students design a gathering space on the slope behind Swine Palace on the LSU campus, and then prepare each of the plan document components that landscape architects prepare in securing construction bids and guide the construction in the field. The document components and process in preparing them is a chance to experience what will be expected of you to know once you graduate and join the professional world of landscape architecture. It is the ambition of this assignment for each student to have a complete set of contract documents to include in their professional portfolio or be able to bring to a job interview. Additionally, working individually students will design and build a folding chair.
