L A 557: Landscape Parametrics & Design Coding
(3-0) Cr. 3. F.
Prereq: Junior classification
Introduction to parametric landscape design through traditional and visual computer programming of the landscape palette. Geometric parameters for terrain, vegetation, water, weather and lighting effects are modeled and developed algorithmically. Computational thinking, logic and computer graphics interactivity are combined to produce stand-alone software application prototypes that address core landscape design principles.
