Course Description and Credit Information

Central Park is the hallmark of Landscape Architecture. This webinar is a design discussion of Central Park with Olmsted's own words. The webinar explores how the habitat of Central Park's North Woods is both complimented and challenged by its surrounding urban environment, and how, over time, public use, storms, and wind have taken their toll. The evolution of central park, Olmsted's thoughts on the purpose of the park, design themes, influence of art, designation of bird sanctuaries, impact of storms on the design, and ecological study are discussed.

 

Learning Objectives:

 

1. Understand the how and why central park was designed
2. Comprehend the outside influences such as art on the design
3. Learn the evolution of the park through the years based on human decisions and nature induced decisions
