Posted by Unknown 0 komentar
Case studies are widely used in most professions, including medicine, law, engineering, business, planning, and architecture. This practice is also becoming increasingly common in landscape architecture The primary body of knowledge in landscape architecture is contained in the written and visual documentation–that is, stories–of projects, be it well-known ones such as New York's Central Park, or more modest projects such as a small neighborhood park. Together, these cases provide the primary form of education, innovation, and testing for the profession. They also serve as the collective record of the advancement and development of knowledge in landscape architecture.

This report summarizes a research project commissioned by the Landscape Architecture Foundation (LAF) in 1997 and completed in 1999 for development of a case study method for landscape architecture. The report concludes that the case study method is a highly appropriate and valuable approach in landscape architecture. The body of research and practice in landscape architecture is already based to some degree on a case study method. Many past designed projects, research studies, and educational curricula have utilized a case study approach. The profession lends itself especially well to this type of critical analysis. With increased rigor and funding, the case study method promises to be an increasingly common and effective form of analysis and dissemination for landscape architects.
