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.
