Environmental Design

May 20, 2013 admin

The goal of the Landscape Architecture Program at UC Davis is to increase the quality of life through the development and preservation of landscape design and planning processes that are meaningful, relevant and sustainable:

  • meaningful in that they reinforce sense of self, sense of place, and sense of community
  • relevant in that they provide solutions to environmental problems rather than contributing to them
  • sustainable in that they embody long-term, permanently beneficial relationship between human culture and the physical/natural environment.

Through our research and our teaching facilities, as well as through innovative landscape design and planning, we aim to provide individuals with a means of making positive connections between their personal lives and the environment in which they live.
