Cal Poly San Luis Obispo

Architecture of the landscape, at every scale: small, large or regional, is a profound and important human experience, and to put all of its elements together in a harmonious and sustainable way requires a thorough understanding of the natural systems, technical knowledge of the infrastructure, astute planning, communication skills, artistic acumen, and poetic sense.

It needs a careful orchestration of teaching skills and scholarship to provide quality education for this challenging field, and we at Cal Poly have the national reputation for it. Cal Poly San Luis Obispo faculty is deeply committed to bringing this to a higher level of perfection. There is no better landscape setting than San Luis Obispo to study landscape architecture. Also, we are only three hours away from two of the major urban corridors of the world: San Francisco Bay Area.

USC

The USC Landscape Architecture + Urbanism program develops real-world issues, formulates and re-formulates problems, explores and proposes operative strategies and becomes part of the discourse with stakeholders and cities. The resistive capacity of the landscape to the ever-globalizing, homogenization of territories is created as a means to shape possible futures for parks, neighborhoods, city districts and the larger stewardship of the landscape. 
 
USC’s programs draw their inspiration from the, energy and dynamism of Los Angeles itself, a complex, blend of urban life and cultural diversity. Blessed with a mild climate, yet at risk from earthquakes and other natural or, manmade disasters, LA is a city that has learned to take, environmental and ecological questions seriously. Above all, Los Angeles is a highly original, experimental city that, consistently challenges preconceptions and serves as an, incubator for new ideas and practices.
