LA in Urban Context: Welcome

Hi all, welcome to the guest lecture in Landscape Architecture, entitled “Landscape in Urban Context“.

This page is where you can find and download all the materials. I have split them into six pdfs (with embedded voice-over). They can be opened in Adobe Reader, make sure you read them in sequence to avoid confusions:

1 of 6 – LA Urban_Introduction low

2 of 6- LA Urban_Case Studies 1 Part 1 low

3 of 6- LA Urban_Case Studies 1 Part 2 low

4 of 6- LA Urban_Case Studies 2 Part 1 low

5 of 6- LA Urban_Case Studies 2 Part 2 low

6 of 6- LA Urban_Closing low

A couple of heads-up:

  1. Enable your 3D content so you can play the embedded audio.
  2. Read instructions on first page of “1 of 6-LA Urban_Introduction low” to operate the pdfs

Supporting materials can be downloaded here:
