Landscape architecture has long contributed to the quality of life in Florida, to health, safety and welfare of its peoples. From ancient Calusa Indians building towns around central lagoons, to Spanish colonists building towns around central plazas, to land developers today building towns around market centers, landscape is the common element in which the pageant of Florida life evolves. This course will bring to light that long continuity of landscape architecture in Florida; discuss the present state of our art; and take a look ahead to imagine those designed landscapes that will evolve along with the ever ongoing pageant of life in Florida. This is the panel presentation you do not to miss.
