NEWsWoRThy ] masTER of laNdscapE aRchITEcTuRE massa playgr ound, Winthrop ma. c aren lee its work in these venues and expand upon the body of knowledge in landscape arch- itecture. As evidence of this commitment to ou r educational mission, our degree project st udents are currently developing capstone projects that look at the hydrological sy stem s of the Mystic River and the surrounding, degraded urban context. One project looks specifically at the ways in which the edge of the river has been formed by a variety of commercial endeavors throughout history, particularly examining the relation ship bet ween oil tankers on the Mystic River and the resulting degraded landscape. The project seek s to reinvigorate the site by ameliorating toxic condition s, providing recreationa l opportunities, a nd mainta ining a palimpsest of the historical condition s on the site. The School of Landscape Architecture will provide outreach and support that focus on emerging design issues in innova- tive interdisciplinary project s that enhance neighborhood and community sustainability, a nd develop new knowledge that prepares our ne xt generation of design profe ssiona ls. The design studio and work in practice provide the backbone for learning that fosters a nd cultivates skills required for informed decision making at a variety of scales. President Ted La ndsmark comments, “The BAC’s professional degree offerings now encompass all aspects of the built environment — la ndscape a rchitecture, a rchitecture, a nd interior design — for both new and advanc ed st udents. Interdisciplinary professional studies are now a vailable to Bachelors and Masters students, making the BAC one of a handful of American schools offering this broad range of environmental design options. Our landscape de sign programs encompass studies from soils and plant identification, to landscape history a nd preser vation, a nd a rt in urban environ- ments. In conjunction with our La ndscape Institute, these courses provide unparalleled opportunities in and beyond Boston to study sustainability a nd the enhancement of urban environments. Special thanks go to Landscape Architecture program head Pat Loheed, whose dec ades of dedicated teaching and service to the BAC are now capped with her thoughtful stewarding of the grow th of our landscape programs, and with the succ es sful accrediting of b oth our Bachelors a nd Masters L andscape Architecture professional programs.” Interdisciplinary professional studies are now available to Bachelors and Masters students, making the BAC one of a handful of American schools offering this broad range of environmental design options. 6 pRacTIcE
