Berkshire Botanical Garden
This design course will introduce students to the design process—the systematic way designers approach a site and client. The course, taught by landscape architect and fine artist David Dew Bruner, will include a series of simple projects that will end with a garden designed by the students. Learn design principles such as form, balance, repetition, line, texture, color, and spatial relationships. Additionally, students will be introduced to landscape history and how it helps the designer resolve and inspire garden design. As the adage goes, we cannot escape our history so we have to understand where we came from.
