2020-2021 SPRING SEMESTER LANDSCAPE DESIGN COURSES

Landscape Design IV

Since the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic, we have been witnessing a new migratory flow of people. Previously known rural to urban migration flow is today reversed from urban to rural for a more isolated way of living to avoid the socially inflicted problems. Many small holiday towns are affected by this phenomenon.  This could cause a disorder in these rural areas or it could be an opportunity to have an equally distributed population in the small and large towns in the country. The class will do research on ‘what does living in a metropolitan mean versus living in a small town?’ and ‘the change on the city dwellers’ needs, desires and behaviors’.
