This course will explore the shaping of contemporary Latin American Landscapes (LALA) by examining their cultural and environmental conditions as reflected on the built realm.
 
For the purposes of this course, the concept of Landscape will be understood as a broad construct. This is, it not only has to do with bio-physical conditions, but also with cultural origins (pre-european or native American, Spanish, Portuguese, or other influences), historical development, economic activity, rural and urban settings, among other conditions. And, the idea of Landscape is not strictly related to the practice of Landscape Architecture, but also to all other disciplines shaping the built realm, including architecture, urban planning, urban design, and others. As this course tries to understand culture and place, it will also look at socio-economic conditions and society in general.
