If anyone has any questions about the Landscape Architecture major I can help answer them. I am currently a freshman at Cornell studying landscape architecture.

    All the landscape arch courses at cornell are awesome. the cornell landscape architecture studio is probably the nicest studio out of any architecture or landscape architecture studio in a university. i have a considerable amount of freetime to do what i want. im pledging a fraternity and doing a club sport next semester. i usually spend the last few days before a final critique in the studio but during the normal week i have a lot of time and can go party three nights a week.

    as far as what the studio class is like it varies from school to school. i know for normal architecture they start you off doing a bunch of small design projects like designing cubes and such before starting you off on a project for a house or building. ive only been here a semester so ill go over what we did. for us, we started the semester with one huge project that took up the first half of the semester. our professor gave us a real design problem with a 120 acre site 45 minutes away. the site was old farm land and we had our clients who were converting it into a natural burial cemetery. there were a lot of restrictions and design problems regarding the site and it was an overwhelming but in the end rewarding project. mine came out very well.

    our second and final project was a local site on the cornell campus between Olin and Uris library and the clock tower. We had to redesign the plaza area. Mine also came out very well this time. i can post some pictures of them later.
