[M3551.000500] Biodiversity and Environmental Planning

2 credits | Lecture/Seminar | Master | Dept. of Landscape Architecture | Environmental Landscape Architecture
As the global biodiversity loss is accelerating, the conservation at the local level becomes important as well. Therefore, it is crucial how to assess and promote the local biodiversity of the area, not only in the new development projects but also the existing environmental management process. In this process, our understanding about the complex ecosystem needs to be simplified with the concept of habitat. For this, analytical thinking about the quality, spatial characteristics, and management plan of the habitat is required. In this course, using Habitat Evaluation Procedure (HEP), we will discuss the biodiversity conservation plan of the site based on the quantitative and scientific evidences, and discuss how to achieve the plan in a reasonable way.

To this end, we first understand the role and meaning of energy, the law related to energy, the definition of energy system and energy paradigm, and examine how energy has been used in society throughout human history, focusing on the relationship between energy and politics, economy, science and technology, resources, and the environment. Through this process, the fact that sustainable development is possible when considering the relationship between energy, environment, economy, and equity will be understood and the relationship between carbon neutrality and energy transition will be also understood in that context. Furthermore, by examining various energy policies by country by period, and understanding the contents of energy policies, what process and with whom energy policies are established, and who are the main actors in energy policy decisions, the process of energy policy decision-making will be understood. Through this course, students will be able to acquire the ability to analyze energy policies toward carbon neutrality.

[M2968.001400] City Design Practice Seminar

3 credits | Lecture/Seminar | Master | Dept. of Landscape Architecture | Urban Environmental Design
Urban design is a key attribute that has helped guide the city making process. The premise of the seminar is that cities are shaped by and in turn influence many forces: ecology, economy, transportation, technology, history/culture, and health/wellbeing. These forces have influenced urban designers to reinvent the way people live, work, and play in cities by adapting to changing environment and technology. City Design Practice is a seminar to investigate projects and trends in urban design around the world. The seminar is consisted of two parts. First half of the course will begin with discussion around classic and contemporary theories of urban design and invite various experts from domestic and international practices to present and discuss their projects and ideas. The second half is consisted of cross-country comparisons of the historic and new cities, in which students will gain theoretical and practical knowledge of city designs in relationship to built- and natural-form and the city design process from conceptualization to implementation.

3 credits | Lecture/Seminar | Master | Dept. of Landscape Architecture | Environmental Landscape Architecture
This course will study the community participatory design that is becoming important in the landscape and urban design processes. Participatory design for community attracts various stakeholders with the increased interests so that the participants want to solve the issues of their community. Community participatory design also increases the affection and pride of the participants for their community, which helps to increase social empowerment to create better landscape and urban environment continuously. In this course, students will support that the participants from the community are to identify the issues, to find solutions, and to create alternatives and manage activities for a better community. After students have learned management skills of participatory design process and the programs, students will understand the whole stages of participatory design through the workshop. The final goal is to build the design program and create the workshop course for involving residents in the landscape and urban environmental design.

[M2968.000200] Community Planning and Design

4 credits | 설계스튜디오 | Master | Dept. of Landscape Architecture | Urban Environmental Design
The physical environment of a city can be created in a short period but the diverse activities and lives of people in the city cannot be created as rapidly. This is the trap in which an urban planner or designer can be caught and a very difficult problem. This studio course will conduct community planning and design with a strong emphasis on the above problem. Students will experience new approaches to urban planning and design.
