Field Sessions

DOWNTOWN ANNAPOLIS, PACA GARDEN, US NAVAL ACADEMY

Annapolis, Maryland  |  Credits: 2 PDH – HSW
Instructor: Squire Frederick, Town Crier of Annapolis

Learn the historical significance and design choices made specifically for these spaces. Discuss how the space is used by both residents of the local area and tourists alike. By physically walking the space, we are able to relate our usage to that of other visitors to fully assess their wants and needs. Historical context is used to define the original goals and objectives of the designers who were first tasked with creating the space. By relating the history of the space to the current time period, we are able to gather ideas on how to create a design geared towards modern needs without sacrificing the history behind the original desire for the space. The course asks the question: how do these historically educational spaces affect the knowledge and health of the visitors? Methods are offered that landscape architects can employ to design and implement streetscape and park-like design to improve older, more traditionally designed, spaces for the modern era. A portion of the course is directed towards residential landscape architects by educating on traditional garden design to be contrasted with the more modern work employed at many firms. It will conclude with some time for Q&A.
