TASK 3: DESIGN CHALLENGE
Each week, students are required to complete a design challenge that focuses on the application of the content covered in the readings presented in the textbook. Students are expected to present their best work and compile a curriculum portfolio that showcases their abilities in Housing & Interior Design content. For this design challenge, students will experiment with landscape architecture. Each student will design a landscape plan for a client. The plan will incorporate plants that work for the location. Upon completion the final product will be included in a portfolio that is due at the end of the semester.
