Cornell University offers accredited, license-qualifying landscape architecture degrees at the undergraduate and graduate levels. The undergraduate landscape architecture degree is the only one of its kind in the Ivy League. Both academic programs provide a sound grounding in theory and technology which is deployed through the design studio and supplemental courses that inform the design process.

Due to its unique position within the university, the Department of Landscape Architecture promotes interaction and collaboration with other academic fields, including horticulture, architecture, city and regional planning, fine arts, and the natural and social sciences.

The Department of Landscape Architecture would like to congratulate Steve Lefton and Elizabeth Kennedy on being named ASLA Fellows.

Climate-Adaptive Design PHASE II

Jun 16, 2021

Approximately $125,000 is available to design a project to reduce shoreline or stormwater risk in one or more of the following communities-the village of Catskill, city of Hudson, city of Kingston, or village and town of Ossining. Each of these communities participated in the Climate-Adaptive Design studio, a program that links Cornell University graduate and undergraduate students in landscape architecture with flood-risk Hudson Riverfront communities to explore nature-based design alternatives for climate resilient and connected waterfront areas.
Eligible projects must reduce risks from shoreline or stormwater flooding and erosion while enhancing habitat value, which may include options for strategic relocation, resilient waterfront structures and infrastructure, natural and nature-based shoreline design, and stormwater green infrastructure. Locations that received Climate-adaptive Design Phase II funding in 2019 are not eligible for this RFP and include Kingston Point in Kingston and the Village of Piermont.
The deadline for proposals is July 23, 2021, at 12 p.m. There will be an informational conference call via WebEx for interested applicants on June 30, 2021, at 10 a.m.
